In response to the announcement of BP’s Q1 profits, Chiara Liguori, Oxfam GB's Senior Climate Justice Policy Advisor, said:

“With BP’s earnings once again in the billions and its oil production higher than the last quarter, we clearly cannot rely on fossil fuel companies to lead us out of the escalating climate crisis.

“The buck must stop with the Government. Instead of adding fuel to the fire by allowing new oil and gas licenses, they can and should be taxing fossil fuel companies like BP, more to ensure they pay their fair share for damage caused by their activities.

“We need faster and fairer action to support people living in poverty - in the UK and globally - who did the least to cause the crisis but who are now suffering the most, and fossil fuel companies should foot the bill.”
