Our key issues and stakeholders

We conduct a materiality review to evaluate the issues that matter most to our stakeholders and our business


Who we’ve engaged with

In preparing this report, we met with around 100 different organizations including investors, non-governmental organizations and business partners, who collectively represent some of our main stakeholder groups.

How we assess the issues

We prioritize the issues according to how important they are to our stakeholders and how they could impact BP’s ability to deliver its strategy.

We validate this with representatives from our group risk, environment, human rights and society, government and political affairs, upstream, downstream, policy and technology teams, as well as our board-level safety, ethics and environment assurance committee.

Our material issues tend to be relatively consistent year to year. Carbon capture, use and storage, as well as diversity and inclusion, were issues that gained greater prominence in 2018.
