BHP objective and strategy
âOur iron ore and metallurgical coal create the steel that builds cities and makes renewable energy infrastructure possible; our copper is needed for electrical appliances and wind turbines; our oil fuels mobility; our natural gas and energetic coal provide energy and heat; and our nickel enables the development of storage solutions for intermittent wind and solar energy. And for the future, potash has the potential to support more efficient and sustainable agriculture by making crops more productive.
In 2020, BHP published its Climate Change Report 2020, a special publication designed for a more detailed discussion of our approach to identifying and managing climate-related risks and opportunities, which aligns with the recommendations of the Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) Task Force. It describes its successes, its lessons and its plans for future initiatives.
