We now employ over 8 thousand people, crushing about 28 million tonnes of sugarcane per year and providing bioenergy to 1.8 million people.
Being part of this business from the start is something that I am deeply proud of, and now that bp has announced its new sustainability framework, I see that the aims within it are already part of our culture. For me, Aim 16, enhancing biodiversity, has always been present in my life and in our business."
Our aim 16 is all about making a positive impact on the world through our actions to restore, maintain and enhance biodiversity where we work. We will also continue to work with others, including our joint ventures, to influence and promote collective action on biodiversity.
Although this is a new aim for bp, our biofuels business is a great example of past initiatives that enhanced the local biodiversity. I’d like to share two that are very important to me:
Our ambition is to be a net zero company by 2050 or sooner and to help the world get to net zero. We have set out 10 aims to support this ambition.
Our purpose is reimagining energy for people and our planet. We want to help the world reach net zero and improve people’s lives
In the 12 months since launching the bp ambition to reimagine energy for people and planet, the company has made some key steps in the journey to #bpNetZero
