Diversity is one of the key components of our 3Ps approach to sustainability, “People, Planet, Progress.” As a metric, START tracks several categories related to diversity in Rio Tinto, including the number of women in senior management and board roles.

“We are at a tipping point towards a green future”

We are the forefront of the world’s transition towards a green future and the objective is to bring everyone on the journey.

“Awareness has to be created for a green tipping point, hence radical transparency is crucial”

Paramita shares that it is important to increase awareness of the differentiation for green products.

Without sufficient awareness, consumers will not know the difference between sustainably made and regular products.

That is why radical transparency and traceability is so important as it gives consumers the information they need to make informed choices.

With more sustainable choices being made, there is a greater demand for such products in the supply chain, tipping the world towards a more sustainable future.

START helps to do that by bringing transparency to supply chains through blockchain technology. Learn more here.
