BP

BP is one of the world’s leading international oil and gas companies. Through our work we provide customers with fuel for transportation, energy for heat and light, lubricants to keep engines moving and the petrochemical products used to make everyday items as diverse as paints, clothes and packaging.

BP has been a major operator in Scotland since the mid-1960s, when North Sea oil and gas production began. Since then, BP has continued as a major player, finding and operating numerous oil and gas fields and pipeline systems to bring the hydrocarbons to shore, as well as processing and product distribution and marketing.

For Glasgow 2014, we will provide the Games fleet with advanced fuels. BP and a consortium of partners will also launch a mentoring scheme for 65 young people aged between 17-21 to help give them the chance to develop skills that will make them more employable. They will also take part in a number of projects in their local communities reflecting BPs commitment to Scotland, their Glasgow 2014 partnership and the Games legacy.

BP Target Neutral is the Official Carbon Offsetting Programme for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. BP is running a programme encouraging anyone with tickets to the Games to offset their travel carbon emissions via BP Target Neutral – no matter where they are travelling from – at no cost to themselves. In partnership with the Scottish Forest Alliance and Woodland Trust, a tree will be donated to the Legacy Woodlands for each individual who participates.

BP is proud to support Team England and Team Scotland as well as a number of elite athletes who will represent their country at Glasgow 2014. Our Glasgow 2014 follows naturally from our partnership with the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. We are excited about helping to make Glasgow 2014 a great success.
