Maximising socio-economic benefits
In the early 2000s, Rio Tinto was acknowledged as an undisputed frontrunner in the emerging field of sustainable development. Yet evidence-based assessments today indicate that the company has lost its industry leadership in the field.
Rio Tinto engaged Ergo Strategy Group to help address this slippage by articulating a new framework for maximising long term socio-economic benefits across its many operating assets. Ergo was also tasked with mapping one of Rio Tinto operations against this new framework, with QIT Madagascar Minerals (QMM) selected for the exercise.
