Meet zinc: a metal you’ll find in medieval astronomical tools, space suits and almost every home on earth. In cities, zinc is used to coat steel bridges and buildings to protect them from corrosion. And new ways are being found every day to shape the future with zinc.

With its many uses, it’s essential that the zinc all around us is sourced in a responsible way. At Glencore, we’re committed to making sure that happens.
