WASHINGTON, DC — The Alliance to Save Energy has a new member. British Petroleum (BP) has joined 70 other companies in an attempt to promote energy efficiency domestically and overseas. Currently, BP is the only oil company to join the alliance.

“As the world’s third-largest oil company, BP is a good example of how the private sector can utilize energy efficiency to not only affect their bottom line, but also to improve the environment,” said Alliance chairman and U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-NM).

BP is expected to play a role in the alliance’s recently launched initiative to promote leadership in corporate energy management among the nation’s leading ceo’s and industry leaders.
