BHP Billiton’s 2018 AGMs in Australia and the UK will include a resolution to formally drop "Billiton" from its name. The resources group has been referring to itself simply as BHP in marketing campaigns for the last 18 months. Many of the assets that BHP gained via the merger with Billiton in 2001 have since been sold or spun off into South32. Meanwhile, BHP chairman Ken MacKenzie has indicated that "social licence" will be taken into consideration when selecting directors in the future.
