Gem of the day

Key stakeholders of BP (show your faces, you must be out there somewhere!) managed to show up to a couple of closely-managed roundtables last year to make carefully worded recommendations like this one:

"Review BP's leadership positioning and options to articulate the company's vision, ambition and roadmap, particularly regarding sustainability imperatives."

...and in return they got this:

"BP’s objective is to create value for shareholders by helping to meet the world’s growing energy needs safely and responsibly."

Translation: the objective is to generate short-term profit by exploiting the waning share of oil BP have control over.

Sorry stakeholders, but there's no sustainability in that.
