Vice President, Sustainability and Climate Change
Fiona joined BHP Billiton in 2010 as Senior Manager, Environment and was successfully appointed to the role of Vice President, Climate Change and Sustainability in February 2013. In this role, she is accountable for developing and maintaining the framework that enables BHP Billiton to deliver excellence in environmental performance. She advises the Board and senior management on emerging environmental and climate change trends and represents BHP Billiton in engagements with both national and international stakeholders, including NGOs, academics, industry associations, governments and investors.
She leads the implementation of BHP Billiton’s climate change strategy, including activities in the areas of mitigation, adaptation, portfolio evaluation, stakeholder engagement and low emissions technology. For example, in 2015, she led the development of BHP Billiton’s Climate Change Portfolio Analysis report. This industry-leading analysis describes the impact of both an orderly and a rapid transition to a low carbon future on the valuation of the company’s portfolio.
Fiona also holds several Board positions, including as a Director of IETA, which aims to build international policy and market frameworks for reducing greenhouse gases at lowest cost, and CO2CRC, one of the world’s leading collaborative research organisations focused on CCS.
