BHP Billiton announces support for 'Recognise' campaign

BHP Billiton CEO, Andrew Mackenzie, has announced the company’s support for Constitutional Recognition and the ‘Recognise’ campaign.

Mr Mackenzie stated that support for the ‘Recognise’ movement was consistent with the values underpinning the relationships BHP Billiton seeks to have with Indigenous Australians.

The announcement reflected upon the historic step changes in formal recognition of the rights and interests of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

‘Recognise’ Joint Campaign Director Tanya Hosch welcomed the announcement and said she hoped it inspired others from every sector of society to think about how they could also signal their strong support and leadership.

Mr Mackenzie said Indigenous Peoples were critical partners and stakeholders in many of BHP Billiton’s operations both within Australia and around the world.
