Sustainability is integral to how we contribute to social value creation. It is core to our strategy and sits at the heart of everything we do.

We put health and safety first, aim to be environmentally responsible, respect human rights and support the communities where we operate. Sustainability is a core part of who we are and what we do at BHP. We are determined to make a positive difference.

We also believe sustainability includes playing an appropriate role in addressing global issues such as climate change, supporting and respecting human rights and advocating for social change such as by supporting the rights of Indigenous peoples.

The resources life cycle of exploration and production through to rehabilitation and closure requires us to operate our assets over many decades. This means the long-term health of BHP’s business is directly dependent on the long-term health of society and the natural environment.
