Rio Tinto’s scope 3 emissions will come under scrutiny at the resources group’s Australian annual general meeting on 7 May. A motion will be put to shareholders for Rio Tinto to outline its strategy for reducing scope 1,2 and 3 emissions. Just six per cent of shareholders voted in favour of a similar motion at the 2019 AGM. Meanwhile, Rio Tinto chairman Simon Thompson has supported a push by the Energy Transitions Commission for governments to ramp up investment in green energy as part of the recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
