BP's community investment by type

Economic development

Our activities contribute to local economic development and we help communities develop entrepreneurial skills to create more sustainable livelihoods.

?

Trinidad & Tobago

?

We support the Beyond Borders programme, which provides training to people living in disadvantaged communities in Trinidad. Since 2010, the programme has set up more than 100 community-based organizations and local businesses, creating new jobs in catering, marketing, graphic design and other areas. This has provided life-changing employment opportunities and some communities have even seen a drop in crime.

?

Turkey

?

We are equipping women living in rural areas close to the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline with entrepreneurial skills so they can set up their own businesses, or grow existing ones. We provide training and small grants. This enables them to play an active role in the socio-economic life of their communities. In 2017, more than 250 women participated in training and we supported around 25 start-ups.

?

Education

Many of the education programmes that we support encourage young people to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and we also participate in initiatives to develop the next generation of leaders.

?

India

?

We work with local non-governmental organizations to provide STEM education for underprivileged children in Mumbai. Many of these children do not go to school and have limited access to books and resources. Together with Door Step School and Masoom, we hold workshops where children can learn about science and technology through practical curricula. More than 850 children participated in 2017.

?

China

?

We support a one-year scholarship programme at Tsinghua University for future leaders, which focuses on China’s expanding role in the world. More than 200 people from countries such as Brazil, China, the US and Zimbabwe have joined since 2016.

?

Environment

We support biodiversity and conservation programmes, as well as initiatives to advance scientific understanding of species and habitats.

?

Angola

?

Since 2010, we have partnered with Agostinho Neto University to study and conserve critically endangered marine turtles. To date, the project has recorded around 23,400 turtles and has helped more than two million hatchlings make their way to the sea.

?

US

?

We have supported conservation studies on Alaska’s North Slope for many years. For example, we work with local non-governmental organizations to monitor nesting birds on the tundra to better understand the potential impact of climate change and predators.

?

Engagement

We want to make art more accessible for audiences and communities. In the UK, we have supported arts and cultural activities for more than 50 years. We have long-term partnerships with the British Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal Opera House. We are investing an additional $10 million in these institutions over five years from 2018.
