BP and London 2012

Olympic Stadium, London
BP is proud to have been the Official Oil and Gas Partner for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games 

London has been the home of BP’s headquarters for over a century. So for us, welcoming the Olympic and Paralympic Games to London was an exciting opportunity - one that we believe has made a difference for London and the UK for many years to come. 

BP’s London 2012 vision was to use the power of the Games to inspire change and to provide real solutions for a lower-carbon future. Through our partnership with London 2012, we fuelled the Games in ways that inspired millions of people to think about the mobility choices they make every day. 

With our arts, cultural and educational partners, we created exciting opportunities for young people. And we supported and will continue to support some extraordinary athletes as they prepared for the London 2012 Games and prepare for the next Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
