- Mar 12, 2019-

Foreign media reported that Australian mining giant Rio Tinto CEO Jean-Sebastien Jacques said on Friday that the company is in talks with Apple for the next stage. The company is looking to transform the aluminum business with a low-carbon economy. On March 7, 2019, in Cape York, northeast of Australia, workers talked at Rio Tinto's Amrun bauxite mine. In May last year, Rio Tinto and Alcoa announced the establishment of a joint venture supported by Apple. Enterprises will commercialize this process by 2024. Rio Tinto CEO said that Rio Tinto has promised to achieve large-scale decarbonization by 2050, and is now undergoing a long-term restructuring of its aluminum business, with a focus on improving supply chain transparency and reducing emissions. And said they are looking at the next collaboration with Apple. He also said that Rio Tinto will show that its Amrun mine is part of the supply chain, and the entire supply chain includes aluminum from bauxite to iPhone or laptop, which is also in line with the thinking of customers like Apple.
