Our tax principles
Our Charter and Our Code of Business Conduct (Our Code) define how we work at BHP. Our Charter describes our purpose and values and how we measure our success. It is the single most important means by which we communicate who we are, what we do and what we stand for, and is the basis for our decision-making. Supporting Our Charter is Our Code, which helps guide our daily work. It demonstrates how we practically apply the commitments and values set out in Our Charter.
Our approach to tax is underpinned by Our Charter and Our Code, and is embodied in our global tax principles. The Risk and Audit Committee of the BHP Board endorsed these principles and in FY2019 we conducted assurance that we have adhered to our tax principles.
The six principles set out below govern our global approach to tax
- Corporate citizenship
- Risk management and governance
- Business rationale
- Advocating reform
