BP in Malaysia

1 Apr 2018


Over the past 50 years, BP has progressed significantly in Malaysia from its modest beginning as a small petroleum marketing operation in December 1964.

Our presence in Malaysia is currently spread across a diversified business framework supported by a strong, diverse and multi-talented workforce of approximately 1,000 employees.

Our current operations cover the following businesses outlined below, each well positioned to support the BP group strategy and to propel the organisation back to growth.
With our diverse operations, our outreach to the community and environment is also captured via our commitment towards Corporate Responsibility.

Our community programmes around the world are developed by local operations in response to local needs and circumstances. We believe this is the best way of ensuring that what we do is relevant and meaningful for the business and communities concerned.

In Malaysia, BP’s Corporate Responsibility covers the Wishing Tree - an annual CSR initiative aimed at fulfilling the wishes of children receiving medical attention in the Paediatric Ward of Hospital Kuala Lumpur, a Turtle Conservation Sanctuary via a working partnership with WWF Malaysia and the Department of Fisheries and the Jeans for Dreams Fund where employees could wear jeans every Wednesday in return for a donation of their choice.
