In response to the announcement of BP’s latest quarterly profits, Katy Chakrabortty, Head of Policy and Advocacy at Oxfam GB said: 

“It is fundamentally wrong that big polluters like BP continue to reap billions in profits while the world struggles to meet the rising cost of climate change.

“It is indefensible that despite raking in vast earnings, BP has weakened commitments to reduce emissions – all while the world burns and the poorest people pay the highest price.

“It's past time that the Government showed the moral courage to hold big polluters to account by taxing them more and helping to incentivise a fair switch to clean, renewable energy. We need to demand that people and planet are put before profit and greed, for the sake of us all – now – before it is too late.”
