At BHP, it’s our job to supply the resources big thinkers need to make towers rise, bridges stand and planes fly. It’s a job that never ends. So we’re always discovering more sustainable ways to extract our iron ore, copper, petroleum and coal. And you can’t do that by thinking small.
Electric cars need four times as much copper as standard cars and at BHP we’re proud to be one of the largest producers of copper in the world.
BHP's operations provide the iron ore and coal needed to create the steel that goes into buildings, schools, hospitals, bridges and transport for growing cities around the world.
Looking at a massive hole in the ground and seeing development, prosperity and global growth requires an appreciation of the bigger picture.
Community and social inclusion
BHP has now partnered with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to work with local universities to find a sustainable way to both clean up legacy mining impacts.
We are committed to contributing to society through engagement and advocacy on important issues and by supporting targeted development areas to benefit the communities where we operate.
The commercial case for improving diversity is compelling. BHP’s most inclusive and gender diverse operations have outperformed our average on a range of measures, including lower injury rates, adherence to work plans and meeting production targets.
In 2016, BHP set a bold aspirational goal to achieve gender balance by 2025. In the two years since we announced this aspirational goal, the action, debate and innovation it originally sparked has intensified across our company and within the industry. These forces are essential to bring about genuine change.
