At BHP, we believe success comes from partnering with our suppliers to innovate, collaborate and lift our shared business value. In doing so, we're working together to tackle important issues like social value, climate change as well as inclusion and diversity.
Inclusion and diversity
Partnering for change
Our inclusion and diversity commitments have presented not only a huge opportunity for us to improve and challenge ourselves, but also for our suppliers and other partners to influence bigger inclusion and diversity changes at their companies too.
Collaborating on inclusion and diversity
BHP and Dell Technologies came together to harness the power of company-to-company relationships in Singapore to inspire and empower women in STEM via a unique cross company mentorship programme focusing on leadership development.
How we support local & Indigenous suppliers
Through BHP’s Local Buying Programs, small local and indigenous businesses are provided with an avenue to partner with BHP to supply goods and services to a range of operations. BHP is reducing payment terms to 7 day for all small, local and Indigenous businesses globally, effective 1 July 2021. The change is expected to benefit approximately 4000 supply partners across 31 countries, including the key operating regions of Australia, Chile, the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Trinidad and Tobago.
