One of their global projects include helping Abu Dhabi to support sustainable water and energy management. Creating what they have called The Foreseer tool, bp have managed to create a visualisation of natural resource lifecycles and their interconnectivity in the future demand scenarios. This tool will provide Abu Dhabi’s policy-makers with a deep understanding of the relationships between land, water and energy, thus helping them plan for sustainable development.

bp are also currently the largest operator in renewable energy, focusing on biofuels and onshore wind. In their Tropical mill in Brazil, they have managed to produce ethanol biofuels from sugar cane and electricity from sugar cane waste.
Projects like this need to consider issues such as food security and biodiversity, greenhouse gas emissions, water resources, and impact on the community. This requires expert knowledge from a range of STEM professionals which is why bp hire so many experts in different STEM fields.
