When you communicate externally, you should always act in accordance with Our Requirements for Market Disclosure, Our Charter values and Our Code.
If you are an authorised spokesperson or work in a team responsible for market disclosure, you must immediately release, through the relevant exchanges, any information or major developments which could have a material effect on the share price, or where an investor is likely to use that information to make investment decisions.
If you have prepared external communication materials, you must have them approved by Corporate Affairs.
It’s important you feel empowered to speak positively about BHP when asked by relatives and friends. To be able to do so, it’s important you understand the distinction between information about the Company that should be shared, and material information which can only be communicated by authorised spokespeople.
