Advancing everyday life

We are Glencore

For 25 years across Australia, we’ve been mining the metals and minerals that advance everyday life. We provide natural resources that build and power the world around us – from businesses to homes, smartphones to laptops, airplanes to electric cars. We are one of Australia's largest producers of coal, cobalt, zinc, nickel and copper.

We operate 25 mines in Australia and are part of a global team of 135,000 people in over 35 countries. That makes us one of the world’s largest mining companies that you’ve probably never heard of.

Introduction to Glencore

Advancing responsibly

Providing for today

Preparing for tomorrow

How is a team of over 17,000 bringing $14 billion to Australia each year?

At Glencore, we’re proud of the contribution our operations make to the Australian economy and local communities.

In 2021, we spent over $9 billion on Australian goods and services with more than 8,600 local businesses and paid almost $3 billion in taxes and royalties.

Our economic contribution supports vital jobs and infrastructure across Australia. It helps build and maintain schools and hospitals, and helps fund some of the country’s most important roles – like teachers, nurses and police officers.

We’re a ‘Mine to Market’ company

We don’t just provide natural resources like coal, nickel, cobalt, copper and zinc. We have a presence throughout the commodity supply chain. This means we process, transport and sell natural resources to our network of customers around the world. Ensuring Australia gets the best price possible for its resources. And supporting the country’s largest export industry in the process.

Our in-house global marketing business places Australia’s resources into products made by some of the world's most recognisable brands. These companies are using Australian resources to produce the everyday items we couldn’t live without – like cars, phones, computers, electric cars, TVs, appliances, life-saving medical equipment and more.
