Information on methodology and/or basis

Around one billion cars – largely powered by internal combustion engines – are in use on the world’s roads today. Finding ways to help drivers tackle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is an important part of helping to advance the energy transition.


Castrol Professional is a high performance engine oil and the world’s first certified carbon neutral oil in accordance with the BSI PAS 2060 standard. Castrol assessed the GHG footprint of the Professional range against criteria set by Greenhouse Gas Protocol, an organization that supplies the world’s most widely used GHG accounting standards. Castrol also made a commitment to reduce emissions throughout the product’s life cycle, including the emissions associated with its production, packaging and distribution.


We then offset the emissions through BP Target Neutral, our carbon offsetting programme that helps support emission reduction projects around the world, such as forest conservation in Zambia and renewable energy in China, through the purchasing of carbon credits.
