The chief executive of BP plans to “dial back” a push into renewable energy after disappointment with the financial returns it has so far generated, according to reports.
Bernard Looney is said to have told colleagues he is disappointed with the outcomes so far from the company’s push into areas such as wind and plans to narrow its focus.
He is also said to believe that BP needs to do more to convince shareholders that it is focused on maximising profits and will place less emphasis on so-called ESG commitments.
