As widely circulated reports of BP’s plans for a major organisation shake-up emerge, the energy industry can only wait in anticipation to hear what Bernard Looney FREng FEI, Incoming Group Chief Executive of BP, has to say. Updates to their climate change strategy are sure to have an impact on other oil and gas major’s policies going forward, especially when paired with the increasing pressure from investors and the wider public.

One of Bernard Looney’s earliest speaking engagements will be at the IP Week Dinner on 27 February, held as part of IP Week, on 25 – 27 February 2020. Ahead of his speech, Looney stated, ‘You can see the energy transition as a risk to be managed or an opportunity for us to take. I see huge opportunities for BP and for our industry in helping rewire the global energy system for a low carbon future. In a crucial year for the climate debate, IP Week in February is a welcome chance to discuss what we all want, can and need to do.’
