(NEW YORK) “BP’s 2050 net zero goals provide a welcome benchmark against which its future investment decisions will be judged.

“Looney deserves support and credit for starting BP on the journey towards carbon neutrality and policy leadership. The direction is good, and we look forward to hearing more about the specifics. Time will tell if he gets BP where it needs to go. It’s real actions and verifiable emissions reductions that will be the measure of success.”
