Energy markets are fundamentally changing and shifting towards low carbon – driven by societal expectations, technology, and changes in consumer preferences. bp has been an international oil company for over a century but is now pivoting to become an integrated energy company – from IOC to IEC, from a company driven by the production of resources to one that’s focused on delivering energy solutions for customers. This presentation will share how bp plans to achieve this transition, and why the world needs companies like bp – companies that are not low carbon today but are serious about becoming low carbon – to accelerate progress toward net zero.
