THE sin­cer­ity of BP in meet­ing its net- zero emis­sion com­mit­ments should not be ques­tioned, a se­nior ex­ec­u­tive told the Scot­tish gov­ern­ment.

Peter Mather, re­gional pres­i­dent for Europe at the oil gi­ant, said the firm was com­mit­ted to cut­ting its car­bon foot­print, tran­si­tion­ing into re­new­ables and cut­ting oil and gas pro­duc­tion. Ad­dress­ing the en­vi­ron­ment, cli­mate change and land re­form com­mit­tee at Holy­rood, he said BP would con­tinue ex­tract­ing fos­sil fu­els from the North Sea, although the amounts would steadily drop.
