As delegates from around the world flew in to Paris for the World Gas Conference 2015, they did so knowing that their travel carbon footprint was being offset via BP Target Neutral.
BP had a major presence at the three-yearly event and used BP Target neutral to help WGC achieve its goal to be lower carbon in 2015. The conference attracts delegates and trade visitors from the gas industry, including major gas companies and their service providers.
The CEOs of six international energy companies, including Bob Dudley of BP, used the occasion to issue a joint statement highlighting the role of natural gas in tackling climate change and supporting a price on carbon.
The emissions resulting from all delegate travel to the conference was offset using carbon credits from the BP Target Neutral landfill to gas project at Mamak in Turkey.
