BHP has taken a stronger stance on social and environmental issues such as gender diversity and climate policy under current CEO Andrew Mackenzie. He has also been outspoken on policies such as company tax cuts, free trade and Indigenous rights. Mackenzie believes that companies should take a stance on issues that are likely to have a major impact on them, as well as issues that could have a negative impact if they are not adequately addressed. He recently told an annual investor summit that contributing to the communities in which BHP operates is one of the ways in which it create value for shareholders.
