BP p.l.c. (bp)

Warning! As of 20 September 2021, the EU lobby register has changed format. Temporarily, the register is no longer providing daily data updates of all lobby data which means that the figures on LobbyFacts cannot currently be kept up-to-date. If, for example, you see a company, trade association, or lobby consultancy with "no figure available" for EU lobby costs, open the data card, and click the link to the EU lobby register where you will find the updated registration including EU lobby costs declaration. Regretably, under the lobby register format, NGOs and think tanks are no longer required to provide a figure for EU lobby costs. We will update LobbyFacts with the new data as soon as possible.

Goals / Remit

bp’s purpose is reimagining energy for people and our planet; we want to help the world reach net zero and improve people’s lives.
Our strategy is to transform from an International Oil Company to an Integrated Energy Company focused on delivering solutions for customers. This is a major, necessary step in support of our purpose and of our ambition to become a net zero company by 2050 or sooner and help the world get to net zero.
We expect to be a very different bp by 2030 by implementing this strategy. We will aim to dramatically reduce carbon in our operations and in our production, and grow new low carbon businesses, products and services. We will advocate for fundamental and rapid progress towards the Paris climate goals and aim to be an industry leader in the transparency of our reporting.
As we reinvent bp, we remain committed to performing while we transform, maintaining our focus on safety, operational excellence and financial discipline.
