Our parent company, Rio Tinto, recognizes the importance of tackling climate change. Mining and refining boron is energy intensive, and we are taking action to improve productivity and reduce emissions. The challenge is to meet the world’s growing needs for boron, while addressing the issue of climate change.
Rio Tinto accepts the assessment of climate change science and believes that sustainable development requires both continued economic growth and an effective response to climate change. As a result, continuing to drive economic growth while also responding to climate change is a strategic issue for us. We aim to be part of the solution by:
- Reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
- Providing sustainable products
On the complex issue of climate change, we believe that significant progress towards a solution will only occur where there is broad engagement involving the breadth of experience and opinion from business, governments, investors, civil society organizations, and consumers.
