The Castrol Professional engine oils are now the world’s first certified CO₂ neutral engine oils.

Castrol has achieved this status through two ways. First by reducing the emission at every stage of their product’s life; Castrol has built efficiencies within their processes throughout the supply chain. Secondly, as CO₂ neutrality can’t be achieved through reduction alone; Castrol offsets what cannot be reduced.

Together with its partners in BP Target Neutral, Castrol invests in projects around the world to offset the remaining CO₂ footprint of the Professional Engine Oil range. Currently there are six global offset projects being supported by Castrol Professional. These include biomass conversion to clean electricity in China and Brazil, reforestation in Kenya, wind farms in New Caledonia, and creation of clean energy in Turkey and USA respectively.

Through investing in these offset projects, Castrol Professional assists in generating benefits to the community by helping reduce CO2 emissions and providing other co-benefits such as job creation for them.
