Our sustainability approach

Our products support global development and many aspects of modern life, and we expect many will play an essential role as the world decarbonises.

We recognise sustainability is integral to the work we do at BHP. We believe it leads to higher performance by making us more productive and safe.

We view our management of sustainability as core to our efforts to generate social value including:

  • putting the health and safety of our people first 
  • being environmentally responsible
  • respecting human rights
  • supporting the communities where we operate


Last year, we refreshed our approach to sustainability reporting. Our material sustainability disclosures, key information and performance data are once again in the Annual Report Sustainability section, 1.13 so sustainability disclosures integrate more with overall company reporting.

Our expanded sustainability content including case studies is available at along with an ESG Standards and Databook to make core information more accessible.
