bp group at a glance

We are a global energy business with wide reach across the world's energy system. We have operations in Europe, North and South America, Australasia, Asia and Africa

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.

Our ambition

Our ambition is to be a net zero company by 2050 or sooner. And to help the world get to net zero. This will mean tackling around 415 million tonnes of emissions – 55 million from our operations and 360 million tonnes from the carbon content of our upstream oil and gas production

Our history

Our story has always been about transitions – from coal to oil, from oil to gas, from onshore to deep water, and now towards a new mix of energy sources and a lower carbon future
