British Museum signs a deal of £50m with BP

The British Museum has struck a sponsorship deal of £50m with the energy giant BP to help fund it ambitious "masterplan" of renovation project which is send to be the biggest in history. This decision has angered climate campaigners who have led a decade long campaign calling for institution to cut ties with fossil fuel campanies. https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2023/dec/19/british-museum-bp-sponsorship-deal-astonishingly-out-of-touch

        This move reflects the ongoing debate over the ethics of cultural institutions accepting funding from industries linked to environmental harm. As the climate crisis intensifies, public scrutiny of such alliances is likely to increase, and institutions may face growing pressure to align their sponsorship choices with sustainability and environmental responsibility.

          This is not right ... They should request for funding from companies supporting green energy ...

            This is just absurd... We don't need funding from the same people destroying our planet

                  The British Museum's sponsorship deal with BP may prompt a broader discussion about the ethical considerations of funding sources.

                        This needs to be discouraged completely,we are trying to cut ties with these polluters yet the British museums are strengthening the ties which is unfortunate

                          @rosebellendiritu I agree, this is being ignorant of the fact that there is a problem in such deals. Choosing money over people's interests is selfish.

                            This is so disappointing, its time all institutions value sustainability than profitability.

                                I'm sorry but no amount of money gained will do the living any good on a dying planet! Ignorance is no excuse for lack of common sense.
