New South Wales bushfires
BHP Billiton today donated A$500,000 to Red Cross emergency response and recovery work in New South Wales from the BHP Billiton Sustainable Communities charity.
BHP Billiton Coal President, Dean Dalla Valle, said: “BHP Billiton has had a long relationship with communities in New South Wales, where two of our core coal assets are based. We hope this donation will assist Red Cross in helping the communities that have been affected by the bushfires in the region.”
As well as the A$500,000 donation, BHP Billiton will donate two dollars for every one dollar donated by an employee through its Matched Giving Program.
