 The company has launched 2 initiatives in the UK, which they intend to keep in place until at least the end of April.


 Firstly they intend to supply free fuel to emergency service vehicles, through fuel cards used by ambulance, fire and police services. This includes charging of electric vehicles.

And secondly, from 23rd March they will offer delivery of food and other conveniences from their company-owned stores without a charge. They further say they are expanding the number of retail sites from which Deliveroo deliveries can be ordered - from which they hope delivery charges can be waived - and are offering M&S products and other convenience goods without a premium. 

Bernard Looney, BP chief executive said: 

“This crisis is affecting every part of society and all of us are trying to do what we can to help. It is vital that we support those on whom we all depend, as well as the most vulnerable in our communities. 

“We have identified two ways where we can use our resources and presence around the country to make a small contribution. We will continue to look for other opportunities, taking advice from the authorities, as the country’s response continues to evolve.” 

BP are just one of many companies taking steps beyond their normal services to help those who need it most at this time.
