Our business model

We deliver a diverse range of energy products and services to people around the world


This illustration represents our 2020 business model. To deliver our ambition of reinventing bp, we are retiring this model and replacing it with a new one that is more focused, more integrated and faces the energy transition head on; one that can deliver for the changing demands of consumers, investors and governments.

More information about our new business model will be available in spring 2021.

The energy transition

The transition to a lower carbon future has begun, but it is clear there is not going to be just one low carbon energy answer. We are thinking hard about what the future might hold. 


Think ahead with us using our Statistical Review of World Energy and Energy Outlook

Our ambition

We aim to be a very different kind of energy company by 2030 as we scale up investment in low-carbon, focus our oil and gas production and make headway on reducing emissions.
