BHP Billiton — the world’s leading diversified resources company — acknowledges that the very nature of their operations means they will have impacts on the environment.

The company has committed to finance the conservation and ongoing management of areas of national and international biodiversity and ecosystem value.

In 2011, CI and BHP Billiton launched a five-year Alliance. The core objectives of the Alliance are to deliver significant and lasting benefits to the environment by preserving land of high conservation value in key regions where BHP Billiton operates, as well as to improve BHP Billiton’s land and biodiversity management practices.​

Our role

CI is providing strategic guidance to BHP Billiton on the design and implementation of global conservation projects in conjunction with local partners. CI has also been providing technical expertise to BHP Billiton to manage land and enhance biodiversity in a responsible and sustainable manner.​​

In addition, CI is developing a methodology to assess landscape values that will assist BHP Billiton’s operations to better understand the broader environmental, economic and social values in a given landscape in order to help guide and inform their land use decisions. CI and BHP Billiton are also exploring opportunities to integrate forest carbon into their broader climate change strategy.

Projects are selected from the high conservation priorities in the regions where BHP Billiton operates and thoroughly evaluated to ensure that they will make a lasting contribution to our global natural heritage. Each project is required to reach a high standard for effective conservation management and will be supported by a sustainable financing mechanism, so benefits to people and nature will continue for many years into the future. To date, two conservation projects are underway in Australia and Chile, with more expected to begin throughout 2014.
