Community Investment in Canada
BP Canada’s community investment program focuses on three key areas – education, environment and community. Our goal is to play an active, dedicated role in the communities we operate within.
Our community investment strategy is to invest in people and programs that pursue sustainable and long-lasting progress. Working hand in hand with partners will benefit communities. The BP community investment program’s main focuses are:
- Education: : Engaging students in the classroom, to enhance energy education within the school curriculum. Improving knowledge of the energy industry and its impact on the environment enables future consumers, opinion formers or potential employees to make informed decisions.
- Environment: We are focused on meaningful environmental enhancement and protection project initiatives.
- Community: We are focused on supporting initiatives that help strengthen the community.
BP Canada recognizes the importance employees play in surrounding communities, locally and internationally. The value of our community investment is magnified by providing opportunities for our employees to be engaged in the community. BP Canada matches funds raised by employees through personal donations and volunteer time.
BP Calgary Volunteer Retirees capitalize and leverage their skills, experiences and talents to help the community. They have contributed thousands of hours of service to make Calgary a better place to live.
Through these people and programs we are committed to making positive and long-lasting contributions to communities.
