Western Australia Iron Ore Community Development Report 2023

At BHP, we are strongly focused on making a positive contribution to society through social value – to our people, partners, the economy, the environment, and local communities.

We want to create enduring, collaborative, and mutually beneficial partnerships which improve outcomes for the West Australian community. 
Each year, we are investing in community development initiatives across Western Australia that make a real difference to people. In FY2023, our total community development expenditure in WA was $518.1 million and while the numbers are significant, it’s the outcomes to our community that matter most. 

Creating and accelerating social value is part of our company strategy and is also a strong focus in our future business planning. We look forward to another year ahead, partnering with communities, local businesses and government stakeholders to share in our success and most importantly, making a real, positive difference to thousands of people living in the communities in which we operate, and our great State.

This Community Development Report showcases some of those initiatives which are delivering change and positive outcomes to communities across Western Australia.
