Fortescue Metals Group chairman Andrew Forrest has criticised iron ore rivals such as BHP and Rio Tinto for their stance on issues such as Scope 3 emissions and gender parity. He has described their announcements on such issues as "sugar hits" that have no real substance. Fortescue CEO Elizabeth Gaines has told the pure-play miner’s AGM that its own Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions are a priority, rather than the emissions of its customers. Meanwhile, 24.72 per cent of votes cast at the AGM rejected Fortescue’s remuneration report.
