13,000 tonnes CO₂e [Jul 2017-Jun 2018]
In October 2016, Air BP became the first aviation fuel supplier to achieve carbon neutrality for its global into-plane fuelling operations. The greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are quantified starting from the point at which fuel is delivered to onsite airport storage facilities, through to the sale of fuel ‘at the aircraft wing tip’. Carbon credits are purchased to offset those emissions and the programme is verified by an independent certifier.
Air BP aims to retain its carbon neutral status and has a 10-year carbon reduction plan, first introduced in 2016. This targets a 5% carbon intensity reduction in GHG emissions over 10 years against a 2016 baseline period related to its operations using a range of initiatives. For example:
Any residual emissions are offset through our carbon offsetting programme, BP Target Neutral (BPTN), on an annual basis.
