Powering Progress creates wealth for our shareholders through our shares and dividends. In this way, we support the savings and pension funds of millions of people around the world.

We expect to provide strong returns by taking a dynamic approach to our business portfolio. That means continuing to provide the energy the world needs today, while increasing our investments in cleaner energy. At the same time, we will maintain financial discipline and a strong balance sheet, so that our company remains strong, resilient and ready to realise the opportunities in the energy transition.

Today, we have many strengths. These include the depth of our customer relationships, our world-class trading activities and our integrated business model that produces, buys, trades, transports and sells energy around the world.

We are building on these strengths to transform our company across our three business pillars of Growth, Transition and Upstream. Our Growth pillar includes our service stations, fuels for business customers, power, hydrogen, biofuels, charging for electric vehicles, nature-based solutions, and carbon capture and storage. It focuses on working with our customers to accelerate the transition to net-zero emissions.

Our Transition pillar comprises our Integrated Gas, and our Chemicals and Products businesses, and produces sustainable cash flow. Our Upstream pillar delivers the cash and returns needed to fund our shareholder distributions and the transformation of our company, by providing vital supplies of oil and natural gas.

By taking a dynamic approach to our portfolio, while maintaining financial discipline and a strong balance sheet, we will continue to be a compelling investment case for our shareholders.
