We report on the progress we’ve made on our low carbon ambitions – including the expansion of our solar presence; safety; human rights; our contribution to society; and managing environmental impacts such as water use.
We prioritize the issues according to how important they are to our stakeholders and how they could impact BP’s ability to deliver its strategy. In preparing this report, we met with around 100 different organizations including investors, non-governmental organizations and business partners, who collectively represent some of our main stakeholder groups.
A. “Put simply, it generates value and is about respect. My family came from a small town in Mexico. When we moved to the US I could not speak the language but my teachers saw something in me and helped steer me towards maths. My love of engineering came from people valuing what I could do and seeing my potential. Today I lead engineering for our upstream assets and I make it a priority to create a culture where everyone’s contributions are heard and valued. People who feel included have a sense of belonging and contribute – this generates immense value for the team and the business.”
Our employees, as well as our contractors and suppliers, should work in safe, healthy, secure and fair conditions. Our stories highlight some of BP's environmental and social initiatives from around the world
