We fuel more than 6,000 flights around the world every day and are committed to helping our aviation customers meet the International Air Transport Association’s target of cutting net carbon dioxide emissions in half by 2050, relative to 2005 levels.
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.
Natural climate solutions are a means of capturing and storing carbon emissions through natural carbon sinks, such as forests and peatlands. Stopping deforestation, protecting natural carbon sinks and restoring habitats can help to reduce CO₂ in the atmosphere.
BP has played a central role in creating a new way for reserves and resources of renewable energy to be assessed on a like-for-like basis with fossil fuels.
Meeting the climate challenge requires efforts by all – governments, companies and consumers. Working together can accelerate action. Here are just 10 of the initiatives in which BP is participating.
For the past 17 years, we have been working closely with Princeton University in the US on a research programme that aims to identify the most credible methods of capturing and storing a significant proportion of the world’s carbon emissions from fossil fuels.
