On BP’s Net Zero ambition:

“BP today joins the growing ranks of leading companies setting ambitious goals that will help decarbonize the global economy. With its commitments to achieve net zero emissions in production and operations no later than 2050, and to halve the carbon intensity of the products it sells, BP is demonstrating the vision and leadership needed from the oil and gas industry. What’s more, its commitment to more vigorously advocate for climate policies including carbon pricing will help accelerate the broader effort toward carbon neutrality. BP is among the major companies that worked closely with C2ES in developing our recent report, Getting to Zero: A U.S. Climate Agenda. We’re delighted to see BP turning these concepts into concrete commitments and look forward to working with it and other companies to enact the policies needed to decarbonize our economy.”
