Gladstone Operations Sustainable Development 2020
Rio Tinto is proudly the largest employer and economic contributor to the Gladstone region.
This Sustainable Development Scorecard represents the contributions of the aluminium sites in our portfolio—Boyne Smelters Limited (BSL), Queensland Alumina Limited (QAL) refinery and Yarwun refinery.
Together, we directly employ more than 2,600 people who call Gladstone home.
In our 50 years of operation in the region, we have worked hard to uphold our values—hiring and buying locally, taking care of the environment, making no compromises when it comes to safety and supporting others in the community who make Gladstone a great place to live and work through partnerships, sponsorships and donations.
