Information on methodology and/or basis

Giving our consumers the opportunity to choose carbon neutral products is an important way in which we can help advance the transition to a low carbon future.

Castrol TRANSMAX ATF Professional FE and CVT Professional are transmission fluids used to lubricate the automatic gearboxes in passenger vehicles. Castrol TRANSMAX with Smooth Drive Technology™ automatically adjusts its friction level in response to changing pressures on critical transmission parts, thereby enabling longer transmission life.

In Japan, Castrol TRANSMAX ATF Professional FE and TRANSMAX CVT Professional are both certified carbon neutral in accordance with the BSI PAS 2060 standard.

We offset 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. These projects also help provide economic, social and environmental benefits in their local communities.
