We continue to take action on climate change.

In the past year we announced a new suite of climate change related targets and goals, together with an assessment of the performance of BHP’s portfolio under different climate scenarios. The latter indicated that BHP’s overall portfolio is resilient and, in fact, many of our commodities would perform best under our Paris-aligned scenario that sees more rapid decarbonisation and an increase in average global temperature of no more than 1.5°C.

We progressed towards our operational emissions reduction targets and goal by entering into renewable power supply agreements for our Kwinana nickel refinery and Queensland Coal operations – adding to the Escondida and Spence copper mine agreements announced in FY2020.

With a focus on Scope 3 emissions, we entered into partnerships with major steel producers in China and Japan, targeting technologies to reduce emissions from steel making.
