BP is engaged in the exploration, production and development of oil, natural gas and liquefied natural gas; and the refining, transportation and selling of petroleum and lubricant products. It is one of the world’s seven oil and gas “supermajors”.
We approach every major project aiming to understand and sustain the local environment through reciprocal engagement with local communities. To identify potential impacts, we carry out detailed environmental and social assessments before starting major projects. In 2019 we updated our requirements and associated guidance in our operating management system (OMS), for sites to effectively mitigate their environmental and social impacts through the mitigation hierarchy. We believe that incorporating the principles of circular business models can help us use natural resources, including waste from projects, in a more sustainable way.
100% of our major operating sites required to attest or certify to ISO 14001.
