Rio Tinto is the highest-ranking mining company on the annual Corporate Human Rights Benchmark, which assesses 200 of the world’s largest listed companies in terms of their human rights record. Indigenous and human rights groups have called for Rio Tinto to be removed from the Benchmark in response to its destruction of ancient rock shelters in the Pilbara. Vale was suspended from the Benchmark in 2019 following a dam collapse in Brazil.
