Sustainability Frame

Our sustainability frame underpins our strategy and puts our purpose into action

It focuses on three key areas where we believe we can make the most difference: get to net zero, improve people’s lives and care for our planet. Each of these focus area incudes prioritised themes linked to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.


We are embedding the frame into our DNA, actively driving it through our operating model, governance and culture. We’ve set aims for each of our focus areas which will keep us accountable and help us work toward being a very different company by 2030 – and net zero by 2050.



In Australia, we are focusing our efforts where we can have the most impact for our business and stakeholders.

Supplier diversity and advancing reconciliation

Our partnership with Supply Nation ensures bp procurement practices deliver opportunities for Indigenous businesses to thrive and includes our sponsorship of Supply Nation’s Register Supplier of the Year.


Supplier diversity is part of our Reconciliation Action Plan, where we outline our commitment to increasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander suppliers within our value chain. We support Indigenous participation across our sphere of influence, fostering greater cultural awareness across our stakeholders, increasing our Indigenous workforce directly and within our supply chain and fostering Indigenous Talent.


We are committed to raising the bar and by 2023-24 we are committed to spending a minimum of three per cent of our addressable spend with Indigenous businesses.
