Code of Business Conduct

Working with integrity

* Please note: You need to be connected to the BHP Billiton network to access the tools and resources links within the Code of Business Conduct, or you will receive an error message.

Wherever we operate we do so with integrity – doing what is right and doing what we say we will do. The BHP Billiton Code of Business Conduct sets the standard for our commitment to working with integrity and respect and provides guidance for everyone who works for, or on behalf of, BHP Billiton.

The Code guides us in our daily work, demonstrates how to practically apply the commitments and values set out in Our Charter and reflects the standards and procedures applicable across BHP Billiton.

In 2014, the Code was revised to simplify the language and provide links to further tools and resources if our employees and contractors require further guidance. The links to our GLDs are only accessible if you are connected to the BHP Billiton network.

Raising a business conduct concern

We encourage a workplace where people speak up and ask if they are unsure how to respond to a situation or don’t understand any elements of the Code. We place additional responsibility on our supervisors and managers to ensure their employees and contractors understand and apply the Code in everything they do. Likewise, we urge those outside the company to raise queries and concerns about the business conduct framework that underpins how we do business.

EthicsPoint is the BHP Billiton global business conduct advisory service which is available to help resolve business conduct queries and issues. You can contact EthicsPoint by telephone or online, and can choose to remain anonymous. Queries and concerns can also be raised through our business conduct team, in person or by phone, email or post. For further details please refer to page five of the Code of Business Conduct.​​
