Resolutions requisitioned by shareholders


7 February 2020


In accordance with ASX Listing Rule 3.17A, Rio Tinto attaches proposed resolutions received under section 249N of the Australian Corporations Act for consideration by shareholders at the 2020 Rio Tinto Limited annual general meeting to be held in Brisbane, on 7 May 2020.


Resolution 1

Special resolution to amend the Constitution

To amend the constitution to insert beneath Clause 57 'Annual general meetings' the following new sub-clause: "The company in general meeting may by ordinary resolution express an opinion or request information about the way in which a power of the company partially or exclusively vested in the directors has been or should be exercised. However, such a resolution must relate to a material risk as identified by the company and cannot either advocate action that would violate any law or relate to any personal claim or grievance. Such a resolution is advisory only and does not bind the directors or the company."


Resolution 2

Ordinary resolution on Scope 3 emissions targets

Shareholders request that the company, in subsequent annual reporting, disclose short, medium and long-term targets for its scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions (Targets) and performance against the Targets, consistent with the guidance of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.


Targets should reflect decarbonisation pathways for the company's products in line with the climate goals of the Paris Agreement.
