Asset Management Council and Rio Tinto collaborate in asset management

Australia’s Asset Management Council recently announced a new partnership with Rio Tinto, the mining and metals company operating in 35 countries around the world. Its purpose is to produce the materials essential to human progress and asset management is a key aspect and enabler of Rio Tinto’s business.

The Asset Management Council is a professional membership based organisation established with the intention of promoting the development and communicating best practice asset management techniques. The collaboration will benefit the industry in knowledge sharing between the Asset Management Council Industry Sector members and Rio Tinto’s Asset Management Centre of Excellence.

Rio Tinto employees will gain access to the Asset Management Council’s AMBoK (online asset management body of knowledge library) and quality continuing
professional development opportunities as well as opportunities to access the Asset Management Certification scheme.

AM Council National Chair, Toby Horstead said: “We welcome Rio Tinto as an Asset Management Council Partner as we move forward together to improve society and empower sustainable communities through asset management.”

Stephanie Pearce, Head of Asset Management Centre of Excellence, Rio Tinto said: “Rio Tinto’s partnership with the Asset Management (AM) Council of Australia
further strengthens our longterm relationship. We look forward to playing an integral role in the AM Council’s future direction, particularly around emerging technologies and developing assets for a sustainable future. The partnership brings significant benefits to current and future Rio Tinto employees, giving them access to external networks and opportunities to develop their technical capabilities.”
