Our strategy

Our three-pillar strategy is unchanged – it is focused on investing in our transition growth engines and, at the same time, investing in today’s energy system. And integration connects it all.


Since we set out our strategy in 2020, our track record of delivery has given us increased confidence as we invest in bp's transition and the energy transition.

Our sustainability frame



Our sustainability frame links our strategy to our purpose – to reimagine energy for people and our planet.


  • Three focus areas: net zero, people and planet – include prioritised themes linked to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
  • Aims and objectives: we have set aims and objectives for our focus areas on people and planet, as we did with net zero.
  • Embedding into our DNA: we plan to actively drive the sustainability frame through our operating model, our governance and our culture.
  • External collaborations: we plan to continue the search for partnerships that can help us drive progress, provide skills we may not have, and help us shape the future together.
