Chief Executive Officer’s Review

Andrew Mackenzie
Chief Executive Officer

'Our Charter value of Sustainability is core to our strategy and is integrated into everything we do.'

Our sustainability approach

Our BHP Billiton Charter enables our workforce to understand our common purpose, our values, how we measure our success and the basis for our decision-making. Supporting Our Charter is our BHP Billiton Code of Business Conduct, which helps guide our daily work. It demonstrates how to practically apply the commitments and values set out in Our Charter and reflects many of the standards and procedures we apply throughout our organisation. Learn more about our sustainability approach in our 2016 Sustainability Report.

 

Operating with ethics and integrity

As a global corporate leader, integrity and accountability are central to the way we work and central to our reputation. We are wholly committed to ethical business practices and the highest standards of governance. This commitment is based on our understanding of the transformational potential of sustainable natural resource development and our recognition that operating ethically and transparently is fundamental to harnessing that potential.

We believe a strong compliance framework reflects our commitment to our host communities and governments. Our stakeholders’ interests are best served when the areas in which we operate have a stable social, political and economic environment. Our role in creating that environment is to follow the rule of law, be transparent about our activities and provide opportunities for people to participate in policy and decision-making processes that are free from the influence of corruption.

Realising and respecting human rights

Respect for human rights is critical to the sustainability of our business. We take our human rights obligations seriously and demonstrate this by committing to operate in a manner consistent with the United Nations (UN) Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the 10 UN Global Compact principles.

Our commitment to operating to the highest standards of business integrity in relation to human rights and our strategy of focusing on the development of large, long-life operations bestows on us both an opportunity to make a positive contribution to the realisation of a wide range of human rights and a responsibility to respect the rights of humans and mitigate human rights related risks.

Managing our responsibility for people’s safety

The safety of our people and the communities in which we operate always comes first. Our working environments by their nature expose our employees and contractors to risk. This is why our objective is to identify those risks and implement controls. Our material safety risk assessments include potential community impacts and controls to mitigate these broader impacts. Read more.

 

Leading inclusion and diversity

With a workforce of over 65,000 people working across 91 locations, BHP Billiton strives to create an environment where our talented teams can have a sense of purpose and achieve their full potential. A harmonious workplace is more productive; we recognise that diversity of people and cultures, high motivation levels and feeling recognised for effort and contribution are all factors for success. More on diversity and inclusion at BHP Billiton.

 

Climate change: Building and managing a resilient portfolio

BHP Billiton’s strategy is tied to economic growth in both emerging and developed economies and sustainable development requires an effective response to climate change. As a result, responding to climate change is a priority Board governance and strategic issue for our Company. Read more on our approach to climate change.

 

Actively supporting communities

We play an important role in developing economies and improving standards of living. As part of making a valuable contribution as community partners, we seek meaningful long-term relationships that respect local cultures and create lasting benefits. Where possible, we employ local people, purchase local goods and services and support broader regional and national economies by paying taxes and royalties.

Through a collaborative approach, we work with communities to identify social needs and existing resources through which we can build our social investment. We then partner with appropriate organisations to deliver community projects, using a strong and consistent process to monitor progress and performance. Read more.

 

Contributing to local and national economies and beyond

BHP Billiton is proud of the contribution that it makes to economies in host communities and beyond. The diverse resources we produce are the building blocks underpinning the infrastructure, telecommunications, transportation and energy needs of modern society and improving the quality of life of billions of people around the world. Learn more about our contribution.
