BP is planning to invest double more in fossil fuels as in renewables

BP has presented its plans for 2023 and the oil, gas and energy giant will once again prioritise fossil fuels over renewables, despite presenting itself as a green energy company.
The company has earmarked up to $7.5bn in oil and gas projects, compared with a range of $3bn to $5bn in “low-carbon” energy projects. BP also expects to increase spending on “resilient hydrocarbons” – oil and gas, refining and bioenergy projects – by up to $1bn in 2023
All of this, after a year of record profit for the company that has won from a rise in wholesale gas prices, fuelled by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine
“It’s astounding that in the middle of a climate emergency, BP is planning to invest billions more dollars on planet-warming fossil fuels than on clean, green renewables,” said Mike Childs, the head of policy at Friends of the Earth. But were we expecting better from BP though?
