Sustainability

Our Charter value of Sustainability reflects our priority of putting health and safety first, being environmentally responsible and supporting the communities in which we operate.

  • Sustainability reporting

    Environmental and social performance is critical to our success.  We are transparent about our sustainability commitments, standards and performance  
    requirements and report annually on our progress through our Sustainability Report. The report also includes our Sustainability Framework, outlining our approach to health, safety, environment and community.   
  • Environmental and sustainability case studies

    BHP Billiton is committed to operating sustainably; it is our first value.  Our Sustainability case studies demonstrate ​why the safety and health of our people  
    is core to every aspect of our business and how we deliver on our social, environmental, ethical and economic responsibilities in a manner that is consistent with our values. 

     
  • Sharing opportunities with our communities

    Our social commitment is extensive in the communities and countries in which we operate. We listen to people's aspirations and concerns,  
    respect their rights, and work with them to implement community projects that deliver lasting benefits that maintain our licence to operate.  
  • Environment and climate change

    Our position on climate change is clear and well-established.  We accepted the science almost 20 years ago and spend considerable time understanding and assessing the risks and opportunities for our business.
