A multi-step framework that considers site-specific biological complexity and aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the biodiversity-focused activities undertaken by BHP, both “inside the fence” as a part of mitigating its operational activities, and “outside the fence” as a part of its broader social investment contributions. Phase 1 (now complete) identified a set of suitable biodiversity indicator categories that holistically evaluate marine, land and freshwater biodiversity impacts. Phase 2 (in progress) involves development of the framework to capture the context-specific nature of biodiversity at sites, identify sitelevel indicators to track over time and meaningfully aggregate this information at a corporate level to assess biodiversity-related impacts and benefits.
