How sustainable IT… Helped BP embrace circular principles   

The challenges

Meet BP’s commitment to be net zero by 2050 – a goal that required every element of the business needs to be reviewed to reduce carbon impact and embrace circularity.

Advise on how IT can meet this ambitious target and align with their net zero roadmap.

The solutions

We evaluated the competition, along with the barriers and challenges they would face.

We defined the scope and placed focus on reducing CO2, eWaste, and Capex investment, while increasing social capital and income.

We proposed a three-stage approach:

Maintain and prolong – analyse the global asset base and extend life, while setting up a system of self-spare. 

Reuse and resell – identify economical internal reuse globally, sell excess technology to fund further investment, and maximise the reuse of all IT resources including packaging. 

A new approach for new projects – start using more sustainable technology such as authorised remanufactured and refurbished.

The results

Prepared BP to take a leadership position in circularity for IT with commercial benefits.

Provided global visibility with local sensitivity, and enabled reporting capability and decision-making tools. 

Recommended organisational behaviour changes using our ThinkFirst principles.

We were commended for our work with BP. Our approach and solutions ‘offered the broadest and most innovative approach’.
