    Decarbonisation series: BHP

    Decarbonisation series: BHP

    We’re committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, so we’re putting some of our biggest investments under the microscope to find out what decarbonisation means for them. As one of the world's largest mining companies, BHP produces much of the iron ore, copper and nickel we’ll need as we decarbonise. What targets has BHP set itself to achieve net zero 2050? What progress is it making, and how is it going to get there? We speak with Fiona Wild, BHP’s Vice President of Sustainability and Climate Change, to get the lowdown.

    SHOW NOTES

    Your hosts are Lyndon Horsburgh and Tania Meade.

    Produced by Lyndon Horsburgh.

    Transcript available at unisuper.com.au/podcasts.

    Huge thanks to our guests, Fiona Wild (Vice President of Sustainability and Climate Change at BHP) and Paul Phillips (Investment Manager, Equities at UniSuper). Special thanks also to Sybil Dixon (Governance & Sustainability Manager at UniSuper).

    If you’re interested in following BHP’s decarbonisation journey, here are the resources Paul mentions towards the end of the podcast:
    - The section of BHP’s website dedicated to climate change, including its targets and commitments, is bhp.com/sustainability/climate-change.
    - The section of BHP’s website dedicated to climate change reporting is bhp.com/sustainability/community-sustainability-reports/climate-change-report.
    - BHP shares insights and views on these topics—including many of the big picture, industry level conversations—on its Prospects blog at bhp.com/news/prospects.
    - The BHP Ventures team is constantly searching for the next big idea to make a difference. If you’re a researcher and you have a great idea that you think can help decarbonise the world, visit bhp.com/about/our-businesses and click through to contact BHP Ventures.
