BHP Billiton has stepped up its sustainable development strategy by partnering with east coast-based Australian Indigenous Education Foundation to provide educational scholarships to indigenous high school students and those of university age.

The 10-year, $4.2 million partnership will deliver significant results, according to BHP Billiton Iron Ore president, Ian Ashby.

“Alongside improved access to health services, training and employment, ensuring access to quality education is a significant part of our overall sustainable development strategy,” Mr Ashby told WA Business News.
