Environment, social and governance

Our purpose is reimagining energy for people and our planet. We want to help the world reach net zero and improve people’s lives. 

We will aim to dramatically reduce carbon in our operations and in our production, and grow new low carbon businesses, products and services.


We will advocate for fundamental and rapid progress towards Paris and strive to be a leader in transparency.


We know we don’t have all the answers and will listen and work with others. 


We want to be an energy company with purpose; one that is trusted by society, valued by shareholders and motivating for everyone who works at bp. 


We believe we have the experience and expertise, the relationships and the reach, the skill and the will, to do this.
