If you are responsible for working with our community stakeholders, community development projects or donations, you need to read and understand Our Requirements for Communications, Community and External Engagement and follow approval processes. You must undertake appropriate due diligence and obtain pre approval before engaging any partner or agency to implement a program. This is outlined in Our Requirements for Business Conduct. Use social data and research to make sure the diversity of our stakeholders is understood, including those who may be disadvantaged and vulnerable. You should engage regularly, openly and honestly with people impacted by our operations and take their views into account during decision making.
Where you engage with Indigenous peoples from a host community, you must be aware of the BHP Indigenous Peoples Strategy and undertake cultural awareness training.
