On 31 May 2018 we engaged with BHP Billiton executives Ms. Fiona Wild (Vice President, Climate Change and Sustainability), Mr. James Upton (Head of ESG Policy and Engagement -Group Governance) and Ms. Elisa Morniroli (Investor Relations).
Climate change and the group’s emissions targets. BHP is targeting flat emissions, in absolute terms, off the group’s 2006 levels. Thermal coal which produces the bulk of the emissions remains a key Tier 1 asset to BHP. While management has no intention to divest from these assets, they remain resolute on finding ways to reduce its carbon footprint.
