Social and environmental impact

Social and Environmental baseline studies

A social and environmental baseline study evaluates the condition of air, water, soils, plants and animals and human health before a project is undertaken. Golder Associates is our main consultant, which is leading this multidisciplinary study.

Our approach to exploration

Rio Tinto's exploration teams are committed to conduct their activities in a manner that furthers Rio Tinto's compromise to make a net positive impact on biodiversity across all of its operations.
