Bernard Looney, BP's new boss, has unveiled his plan to tackle the oil giant's carbon problem. Amidst a climate emergency, all the tough questions are being left to his successor to answer
BP’s new CEO is setting out his ‘net zero carbon ambition’ for the oil and gas giant. Bernard Looney wants the company to be seen as kinder and cleaner, committed to tackling climate change. But unless he pulls BP out of the fossil fuel business, anything else is just spin.
Bernard Looney is trying to position the oil company as green and responsible. If BP's new CEO is serious, the company will quickly abandon oil and gas, and move into renewable energy. Until it does, BP will continue to be a major culprit in the climate emergency.
