Rio CEO says zero emissions path might not be clear until 2030

The CEO of Rio Tinto Group, the world’s biggest iron-ore miner, said it might take until the end of this decade before the company has a clear view on how it will become fully carbon neutral.

Rio Tinto’s Jakob Stausholm last month laid out plans to spend $7.5-billion to decarbonise its assets over the next decade and help drive a 50% reduction in its operational emissions by 2030. Yet, speaking at the COP26 summit in Glasgow on Monday, the CEO said technological breakthroughs are needed for the mining giant to go further.
