BHP's Australian 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.
Iron ore and coal are combined to create steel.
Australia is the largest exporter of iron ore in the world.
Steel is used in almost every industry from energy to construction and transportation.
75% of all major appliances are comprised of steel.
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 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.
