The Australasian Centre for Corporate Responsibility and Local Government Super will ask Rio Tinto shareholders to back a motion calling for the mining giant to review its relationship with industry groups. BHP Billiton undertook such a review after the ACCR instigated a similar push prior to its AGM in November. The Australian Council of Superannuation Investors is understood to be supportive of the ACCR’s motion at Rio Tinto’s AGM, which will be held in May. BHP’s review prompted it to leave the World Coal Association.
