Offsets

Last update for Rio Tinto by zerotracker.net: Oct. 3, 2023
Planning to use external offset credits Yes
Separate targets for emission reductions and removals No
Conditions on use of offset credits
  • Must be high environmental integrity
Plans for carbon dioxide removal (CDR) Yes (nature-based and CCS-based removals)

Additional notes: Credits on p17 and 18: "we are ramping up commercial activities to secure high-quality carbon credits focusing on regions where our Scope 1 and 2 emissions are highest." CCS e.g. p18 "We continue to explore carbon capture and mineralisation options leveraging our exploration and geological expertise. " Nature-based removals e.g. p18 "Originate NbS projects that result in more than 500,000ha being under conservation, restoration or regeneration by 2025"
