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

Our net zero ambition

Our ambition is to become a net zero company by 2050 or sooner and to help the world get to net zero.

Our sustainability frame underpins our strategy to become an integrated energy company and translates our purpose into action. 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've 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 care for our planet
  • five aims to improve people's lives.
Get to net zero

We’ve set five aims to get bp to net zero by 2050 or sooner and five aims to help the world get there too.

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 natural climate solutions, circularity and sustainable purchasing.
Care for our planet
Improve people's lives

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.
