We are embedding sustainability in the way we do business and across our strategy. Our sustainability frame sets out our aims for getting to net zero, improving people’s lives and caring for our planet
Sustainability frame
Our purpose is reimagining energy for people and our planet. Our sustainability frame translates our purpose into action and underpins our strategy to become an integrated energy company. It sets out aims in the areas where we believe we can make the biggest difference for bp, our stakeholders and society

Our aims and objectives

We have set aims for each of our focus areas:

  • 10 aims to get bp to net zero by 2050 or sooner, and to help the world get to net zero
  • five aims to improve people’s lives
  • five aims to care for our planet.
Get to net zero

Our ambition is to be a net zero company by 2050 or sooner and help the world get to net zero. We are aiming to be net zero across our operations, production and sales. 
Our ambition is supported by 10 aims: five to help us become a net zero company and five to help the world get there too.

Our five people aims provide focus and structure for the actions we take to improve people’s lives. They build on our strong social impact and risk management requirements, and on guidance in our operating management system.
Improve people's lives
Care for our planet

Our sustainability frame includes a focus on making a positive difference to the environment in which we operate. Our five planet aims cover biodiversity, water management, nature-based solutions including those that reduce or remove carbon emissions, circularity and sustainable purchasing.
