A little information about our business and who we are...
We promise to supply a variety of energy products and innovative solutions that deliver value to our customers.

We will be progressive and performance driven with safety at heart of our performance, whilst pursuing our goal of "no accidents, no harm to people and no damage to the enviroment". BP operations in Africa south of the Sahara range from world-class service stations in metropolitian areas to small rural sites. BP has been in the region for nearly 80 years and is one of the top investors in the continent. Infrastructure in the region inclides more than 50 depots, more than 1,400 retail sites and share in the largest refinery (Sapref in Durban) in the region. Whilst employment with BP is relatively low we estimate that across Africa we employ around 22,000 people directly or indirectly who themselves support 100,000 more. The BP Africa Business Unit has Retail, Commercial and Industrial (C&I) and supply & Distribution activities. As a company, we believe that wherever we operate, our activities should generate economic benifits and opportunities for an enhanced quality of life to those whom our business impacts. Our conduct, we believe, should be a positive influence; our relationships honest and open; and that whe should be held accountable for our actions. In South Africa this has translated to our commitment to the empowerment of Historically Disadvantaged South Africans as articulated in the empowerment Charter of the Liquid Fuels Industry in 2000 of which we are a signatory. In August 2001, the Mineworkers Investment Company (MIC) and WDB Investment Holdings (Pty) Ltd (WDBIH) acquired an equity stake in BP`s South African operations, giving them and immediate three seats in the board of BP Southern Africa (Pty) Limited and 25% shareholder voting rights. As part of the transaction, MIC and WDBIH also secured an initial 25% shareholding in a new BP marketing joint venture, which will exclusively sevice BP`s existing and future Commercial and Industrial customers. A series of cross postings will see MIC and WDBIH staff working for the joint venture and inside BP. The joint venture will eventually be majority owned and operated by empowerment partners.
