Abstract:

The case discusses the sustainability development programs initiated by BP. It also explains in detail the reasons behind BP's decision to start environmental sustainability and regional development programs. Though it was one of the top three companies engaged in the oil exploration and production business, BP adopted a proactive approach toward environmental sustainability. The environmental and regional development programs at BP were successful as they reduced environmental pollution levels in the areas where it operated and also helped in improving the standard of living of the people inhabiting those areas. The case also explains the entry of BP into renewable sources of energy such as solar, wind, and hydrogen.
