According to the BP Sustainability Report 2022, the company has introduced a new emissions target to incentivize progress towards its net-zero ambition, with a weight of 15% for its 2023-25 cycle. BP aims to deliver value through a resilient hydrocarbon business, accelerate growth in convenience and mobility, and demonstrate a track record, scale, and value in low-carbon electricity and energy. The company has established a presence in the UK and US offshore wind with a 5GW pipeline, added 10GW renewable projects pipeline in support of hydrogen export hubs, and acquired a 7GW US solar projects pipeline. It achieved a 41% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 absolute emissions compared to 2019. The methane intensity recorded in 2022 was 0.05%, an improvement from 0.07% in 2021.

BP has taken steps to reduce its carbon and greenhouse gas emissions, including introducing measures for 2023-25 performance shares, which include weighting for tier 1 and tier 2 process safety events, sustainable emissions reductions, relative total shareholder return, operational measures, and financial measures. The company has also introduced two new bioenergy measures, biofuels production, and biogas supply, and has made strong progress in low-carbon energy focusing on hydrogen and renewables & power transition growth engines. BP has doubled its renewables to FID and delivered a pipeline of renewable projects of 37GW BP net by the end of 2022. The average carbon intensity of energy items sold in 2022 was 77gCO2 e/MJ.

The company has consulted with the remuneration committee on emissions measures to be incorporated into annual performance scorecards. BP's sustainability frame is being monitored for effectiveness, including the progress being made by management. The company believes that the real story of BP lies with its people, the culture frame it is building, its net-zero ambition, its determination to be successful, and yet to remain a company where it cares for and about one another.
