BHP

We know that with this depth of commitment comes responsibility - to give back to society and make a fair contribution to the areas we operate in.

While the commodities we produce help improve the quality of life of billions of people around the world, our contribution is much broader.

The BHP Foundation was also established to address some of the most critical global sustainable development challenges facing our generation. By working in partnership with others we seek to raise the bar, find new solutions and set new standards for the future. As a charitable foundation funded by BHP and through our programs, we address challenges that are directly relevant to the resources sector.

Some of the other ways we contribute include:

  • We are investing US$400 million into a Climate Change Investment Program to accelerate our efforts to address climate change.
  • Last year our total global economic contribution was US$46.2 billion (through payments to suppliers, wages and employee benefits, dividends, taxes and royalties).
  • We support local businesses and suppliers through our local procurement plans. Enabling us to direct US$2 billion of our external expenditure to local suppliers.
