Rio Tinto response & statement on repeal of transparency regulations under US Dodd-Frank Act section 1504
Rio Tinto supports tax transparency and initiatives like EITI as a cornerstone of good governance and to improve understanding of the mining sector's economic contribution. We voluntarily published our first Taxes Paid report in 2010 and have continued to publish every year since. We also comply with mandatory reporting obligations under the UK Reports on Payments to Governments Regulations and the Canadian Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act. We support consistent global standards of tax transparency and reporting applying in all countries.
