Through this Program our ambition is to drive new ways of conserving and sustainably managing natural environments for the benefit of future generations.

Sustaining the natural environment that everyone depends upon is one of today’s most pressing challenges. The natural resource needs of the world’s growing population are placing unprecedented pressure on finite land and water resources and accelerating biodiversity loss. Climate change amplifies this challenge.

The BHP Foundation aims to support the conservation and sustainable use of the natural environment for the benefit of future generations. The Foundation’s Environmental Resilience program will invest in a portfolio of large-scale projects empowering people to manage natural environments to achieve environmental and socio-economic sustainability. These projects aim to improve how the environment is valued, enhance conservation planning and share learnings with others.
