BP statement on U.S. exit from the Paris climate accord

Release date: June 1, 2017

The following statement can be attributed to Geoff Morrell, SVP of U.S. Communications & External Affairs.

BP has long supported the Paris agreement, and we hope the Trump administration follows through with its intention to find a way for the U.S. to re-enter the accord -- or another mechanism for addressing the global climate challenge -- rather than to walk away from it entirely. BP continues to believe that it’s possible to provide the world the energy it needs and achieve economic growth while also helping to transition the world to lower-carbon forms of energy.
