BHP CEO Andrew Mackenzie has shown he is not averse to speaking out on issues such as climate change and a separate voice for indigenous people in the Constitution; he has indicated it is proper that he should do so. However, it is reasonable to ask whether BHP shareholders are comfortable with his stance, as well as querying where the BHP board stands on the issues he is raising and whether his views have their sanction. It is possible that giving indigenous Australians a separate voice could at some point impact on BHP’s shareholder value, so it is reasonable to ask whether Mackenzie has given the board any projections regarding this possibility.
