Our core business of delivering energy to the world contributes directly to goals 7, 8 and 13. The way we operate supports the implementation of goals 3, 6, 9, 12, 14, 15 and 17 in the countries where we are present. Some examples of how we are contributing to the goals are outlined below.
We are proud to be part of the first coalition of global businesses working together to support youth-led innovation for the SDGs. As the challenge partner for SDG 7, we will fund and mentor an initiative with a tangible impact on improving access to sufficient and reliable energy that is affordable and clean.
We are helping our customers offset their emissions through BP Target Neutral, which has offset more than 4 million tonnes of CO₂ equivalent (CO₂e) on behalf of customers since 2006. BP Target Neutral has applied the UN SDGs as part of the project selection process, so that projects are not only chosen based on emissions reduction potential, but also on their broader impact to society and the environment.
