Governance

Our Independent Advisory Panel (IAAP) has been central to our operations since the programmes inception in 2006.

The Panel members are prominent environmental and industry experts and meet four times a year to review the performance and robustness of BP Target Neutral. They review individual activities, provide counsel and business guidance on best practices, and assurance on project review and selection. They also publish an Annual Statement on the performance of the programme.

The Project Selection Forum is made up of representatives from the independent organisations The Climate Group, Fauna and Flora International and Forum for the Future, as well as BP Target Neutral. The Forum ensures the robustness of each project and the delivery of socio-economic and environmental benefits locally. All projects are also reviewed and approved by our Independent Advisory and Assurance Panel.

The International Carbon Reduction and Offset Alliance (ICROA), of which BP Target Neutral is a founding member, is an international non-profit alliance of businesses providing carbon reduction and offsetting services.
