Our human rights case studies highlight some of BP's initiatives from around the world
Assessing the risk of modern slavery at our UK retail stations
We assessed the risk of modern slavery at the retail stations we own and operate in the UK. The review included 19 contractor companies who provide construction, maintenance and facilities management services.
Working with construction contractors on labour rights in Georgia
Our South Caucasus Pipeline Expansion project will transport gas from Azerbaijan to markets in Europe. In Georgia alone, around 10% of the workforce originating from other countries such as India and Thailand.
Supporting our joint venture partner in assessing human rights risks in Saudi Arabia
One of our joint ventures is setting up a plant that will blend Castrol lubricants. Our partner is building the plant, and the peak of construction will involve more than 250 workers, largely made up of migrant labour employed through four or five major contractors.
Labour rights audits in our Malaysian supply chain
We piloted labour rights audits in our supply chain as part of qualifying selected potential suppliers in Malaysia in 2016.
Responding to human rights concerns at sea
BP chartered a vessel to carry two cargos of equipment to a drilling rig in the North Sea in 2016. Sailing under an Indian flag, this particular vessel has operated safely in the area for several years.
