Rio Tinto is proud to announce our membership in the Global Battery Alliance (GBA).
The GBA is a public-private collaboration platform founded in 2017 at the World Economic Forum to help establish a sustainable battery value chain by 2030. The GBA brings together leading international organizations, NGOs, industry actors, academics, and multiple governments to align collectively in a pre-competitive approach, to drive systemic change along the entire value chain.

With our membership in the GBA, we are continuing our commitment to:
