At BHP, our purpose is to bring people and resources together to build a better world. We believe we are successful when we work in partnership with communities to achieve long-term social, environmental and economic outcomes. We aim to create and contribute to social value in the communities where we operate through the positive social and economic benefits generated by our core business, our engagement and advocacy on important issues, and our contribution as community partners.

BHP seeks meaningful long-term relationships that respect local cultures. Where we can, we employ local people and purchase local goods and services through our supply chains, and we contribute to broader regional and national economies by paying taxes and royalties. We aim to support the development of diversified and resilient local economies and contribute to quality-of-life improvements that continue beyond the life of our operated assets.
