No damage to the environmentEffective spill prevention is critical to BP Marine’s environmental performance. Our aim is zero spills. A full spill prevention programme forms part of our global Assurance process, which includes training, pre-delivery inspections and full assessments throughout our global network.
In order to continually improve our performance we work with our contractors and customers to report all spills or near misses, no matter how small, which are then investigated and analysed to prevent recurrence. We focus on root causes to ensure corrective actions and preventive measures are utilised to reduce and eliminate future incidents.
