Stephanie is concerned about the impact burning fossil fuels has on climate change. But her dad Andrew is a senior employee at BP and worked in the oil industry for more than 20 years.

The 13-year-old from Surrey questions: “Does this mean he doesn’t care about my future? Does this mean by default that I don’t care about the planet?”

Climate change is a hot topic at home. While Stephanie worries about the Earth’s future, she hopes BP’s sustainability commitments could make her dad part of the solution.
