BHP E-Blueprint Challenge

At BHP we recognise the role we must play in helping the world achieve its decarbonisation ambitions and contribute to the creation of a higher social value in the society we operate.  


In that way, and in line with our objectives to support the net zero transition and continue to lead the sustainable provision of our products, we invite you to be a pioneer and part of the “E-Blueprint” Challenge, an initiative that seeks to transform, revolutionize and promote the integration of clean energies that contribute to the decarbonization and energy transition of our transport fleet, thus enabling sustainable mining and widespread diesel displacement in the 2030s. 


Currently, at a global level, BHP has thousands of buses and light vehicles for transporting personnel from urban centers to and within its sites. In particular, Minera Escondida uses around 30 vans, 120 buses and over 1,000 pickup trucks that circulate daily, all of which use diesel fuel.



Technological solutions are sought to manage fleets of low-emission vehicles (buses, vans and trucks, among others), integrating energy requirements, infrastructure and resources of each area in a systematized, centralized and optimized manner

At Enterprise Innovation & Decarb Procurement  of BHP, our objective as a sourcing function is to bring the best of the innovation world to BHP, to solve current problems that need a solution or optimization. The area enables an Open Innovation methodology at BHP to access technological and business capabilities to solve operational challenges. It does this by identifying and prioritizing critical business challenges, aligned with BHP’s priorities, and launching them to the market, not by specifying a product or service, but by asking for a solution. It then awards an on-site pilot to demonstrate that the solution is viable.
