STAMFORD, Conn., June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tronox Limited (NYSE: TROX), a fully integrated global leader in the mining and processing of mineral sands and the production of titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigments, has released its 2013 Corporate Responsibility Report. To view the report in its entirety, please go to www.tronox.com/sustainability.

Nonhlahla Mthembu at Shepley Farm near Tronox’s KZN Sands operations in South Africa. Tronox supports local economic development initiatives globally and is committed to returning mined land to its original condition at the company’s three mine sites.

The report is a companion book to the company's 2013 Annual Report, which details last year's financial performance and highlights Tronox's unique strategic position as the largest vertically integrated enterprise in the industry. The Corporate Responsibility Report presents Tronox's sustainable development goals and measures the progress the company is making on five primary areas of environmental focus: energy consumption, water use, waste, carbon emissions, and post-mining land rehabilitation. It also shows the company's dedication to safety, diversity and community development. In preparing its report, Tronox applied the Global Reporting Initiative's (GRI) framework, a generally accepted methodology for communicating an organization's economic, environmental, and social performance.

"A strong commitment to sustainable development and safety is inextricably tied to the long-term success of Tronox," said Tronox Chairman and CEO Tom Casey. "Whether we are reducing energy use by investing in a cogeneration plant at our Namakwa Sands mineral separation plant in South Africa, or eliminating carbon emissions by upgrading oxidizers in our manufacturing processes at our three global pigment production facilities, Tronox is exploring new and innovative ways to lessen our impact on the environment, while continuing our efforts in stewardship and rehabilitation. We make these investments because we believe it is our responsibility to do so. And, in taking these actions, we bring sustainable operating programs and long-term cost efficiencies to our business that contribute to our overriding business goal."
