While we proudly wear the livery of one of the world’s most recognisable brands, many of our stores are owned and operated by Kiwi business-people. We are proud to employ more than 3,000 New Zealanders across our wider operations.
Every year, BP donates thousands of dollars in funding and fuel to hundreds of community organisations around New Zealand. We take our partnerships seriously and we are committed to long-term, enduring relationships that have measurable impacts on the community. In fact, our partnership with Surf Life Saving New Zealand began in 1968 and our partnership with the Young Enterprise Trust began in 1993. In 2018, we celebrated our 50-year partnership anniversary with Surf Life Saving NZ and our 25-year partnership anniversary with Young Enterprise.
We are committed to delivering sustainable and efficient operations every day by educating staff, making conscious supplier and partner choices and through more sustainable construction decisions. Wild Bean Cafe is the number one retailer of barista-made coffee in New Zealand and has been offering Fairtrade Certified coffee beans since 2008. This means that as Wild Bean Cafe grows, the benefits for cooperative communities overseas grow too.
