START Responsible Aluminium empowers you to make the sustainable choice.

What is START?

START Responsible Aluminium sets the standard for sustainable aluminium production through transparency, traceability and technology.

By building START on digital blockchain technology, we’re providing traceability and provenance for our aluminium products giving assurance of responsible production practices from mine to market.

Like a ‘nutrition label’ for aluminium, key information is provided across 10 criteria for Rio Tinto aluminium from mine to market: Global warming potential, water management, renewable energy, recycled content, waste management, safety performance, contribution to communities, supplier due diligence, governance systems and diversity.

We’re excited to be on this journey, working with our customers and engaging with others across the aluminium value chain, bringing a product to market for a more sustainable future.

START Responsible Aluminium.

Empowering a sustainable future.
