BHP Billiton has confirmed that it will cease being a member of the World Coal Association, citing factors such as differing stances on energy and climate policy. BHP has also indicated that it derives little benefit from being a member of the WCA. However, the Australasian Centre for Corporate Responsibility’s executive director Brynn O’Brien has criticised BHP’s decision to remain a member of the US Chamber of Commerce. BHP said that while the USCC’s stance on climate policy still differs to its own, membership of the organisation has significant benefits.
