How we operate

 
 
The energy we produce helps support economic growth and improve quality of life for millions of people. We strive to be a world-class operator, a responsible corporate citizen and a great employer.
 
Within BP, our operating businesses are accountable for delivering safe, reliable and compliant operations. They have the responsibility to identify and manage risks and bring together people with the right skills and competencies. Our ability to be a safe and responsible operator depends in part on the capability and performance of our contractors, suppliers and partners. We address this in a veriety of ways including training and requiring adherence to operational standards in legally binding agreements.
 
We seek to identify and manage risks in the supply chain relating to safety, corruption and money laundering, and aim to have sustainability-related provisions in our contracts with suppliers and contractors.
 
We believe the societies and communities we work in should benefit from our presence. We aim to create positive, meaningful and sustainable impacts in those communities through our social investments.
