The world’s carbon budget is finite and running out fast; the world needs a rapid transition to net zero. Increasingly, we all want and need energy that is secure, affordable and lower carbon. To deliver that, trillions of dollars will need to be invested in replumbing and rewiring the world’s energy system. It will require nothing short of reimagining energy as we know it.
bp has set an ambition to become a net zero company by 2050 or sooner, and to help the world get to net zero.
