Acknowledgement to Country
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and live, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
BHP’s commitment to Indigenous employment
We encourage applications and enquiries from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are looking to start or continue their career in mining with BHP.
Indigenous Peoples are critical partners and stakeholders in many BHP operations both within Australia and around the world.
Many of our operations are located on or near lands traditionally owned by or under the customary use of Indigenous Peoples and the long-term nature of our operations allows us to establish long lasting relationships with these Indigenous communities.
BHP’s Reconciliation Action Plan
Reconciliation is about recognition. Recognition of past wrongs, recognition of current challenges, recognition of future opportunities.
Wherever we operate around the world, BHP will respect the rights of indigenous peoples and contribute to their sustainable long-term economic empowerment, social development priorities and cultural well-being.
BHP’s Reconciliation Action Plan reflects our global approach to how we work with indigenous peoples in Australia, which is consistent with our global commitments and values.
The BHP Reconciliation Action Plan outlines in detail our approach to working with Indigenous Australians and our core commitments and targets.
