Five aims to help get the world to net zero

We are advocating for policies that support net zero, incentivizing our workforce, assessing our alignment with trade associations and helping corporates achieve their decarbonization goals. We are also taking steps to increase the transparency of our disclosures.

Our aim 6 is to more actively advocate for policies that support net zero, including carbon pricing

We have redirected resources to promote well-designed climate policies. In the future, any corporate advertising will be to push for progressive climate policy, communicate our net zero ambition or support delivery of our strategy, invite ideas, or build collaborations.

We will continue to run recruitment campaigns and advertise our products, services and partnerships – although we aim for these to increasingly be low carbon.

Our advocacy focused on several themes during 2023, including: stronger methane emissions standards; the need for increased climate policy and regulation; and policy frameworks that support growth in low carbon hydrogen, renewables and power, bioenergy and decarbonizing transportation.

Aim 7: incentivizing employees
Our aim 7 is to incentivize our global workforce to deliver on our aims and mobilize them to become advocates for net zero

This will include continuing to allocate a percentage of remuneration linked to emissions reductions for leadership and around 36,400a employees.

To help our employees contribute to the delivery of our strategy and sustainability aims, we are educating them about the importance of net zero and supporting them to become advocates for net zero.

Our aim 8 is to set new expectations for our relationships with trade associations around the globe

We will make the case for our views on climate change within the associations we belong to, and we will be transparent where we differ. And where we can’t reach alignment, we are prepared to leave.

Trade associations play a key role in fostering industry collaboration and bringing stakeholders together. They also offer opportunities to share good practice on matters of importance to bp. Our voice is one among many, but we believe everyone needs to work together to achieve net zero.

Aim 9: transparency leader
Our aim 9 is to be recognized as an industry leader for the transparency of our reporting

On 12 February 2020, we declared our support for the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). We intend to work constructively with the TCFD and others – such as the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) – to develop good practices and standards for transparency.

We are taking steps to promote stakeholders’ access to comparable and decision-useful climate-related disclosures. We have actively participated in the development of carbon and net zero standards and benchmarks. Whether or not we agree with a particular methodology, we welcome the perspectives they can provide.

Our aim 10 is to provide integrated clean energy and mobility solutions. Our regions, corporates and solutions team is working to help countries, cities and corporations around the world decarbonize
We provide integrated multi-energy solutions to help large corporations reduce their carbon emissions – bringing together expertise from across bp and from our partners. Our focus is on working with corporates in sectors that have significant emissions and are not straightforward to decarbonize such as heavy industry and logistics.
