We’ve been excited by the response since the ALC programme’s launch in 2018. This year’s programme is even bigger and better – with the number of accredited activities rising by around 50% in just 12 months. 52 activities were accredited or re-accredited in 2019, up from 33 in 2018.
These activities represent the diversity of our businesses and include everything from our advanced fuels and lubricants to lower carbon products, and from global research initiatives to partnerships with start-ups developing innovative new technologies.
Some of the activities represent actions taken within BP, while others highlight ways in which we are working with others to respond to the dual challenge. All of them demonstrate what we call a ‘better carbon outcome’.
To be accredited, each activity must meet rigorous criteria and requirements and be independently assured by our assurance partner, Deloitte LLP. You can find out more about each activity by clicking on the individual model icons on the image above or the links below.
In all, we estimate that 53 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent have been saved or offset through activities delivered by BP, and 4.7 million tonnes through activities delivered by BP partners since the programme began in 2017.1
But we’re not stopping here. Our people love a challenge and we will continue to work to find new, lower carbon ways of working. At BP, we see possibilities everywhere to help the world keep advancing. Our ALC programme is one way of showing you how.
