Divested ventures

Responsible divestments are a key part of transitioning our portfolio to deliver upon our Powering Progress strategy. In 2021, total divestment proceeds were approximately $15 billion. See the business sections in our Annual Report 2021 for details.

We carry out due diligence on potential buyers when divesting parts of our business. We collaborate with both in-house and external experts, where appropriate, to conduct checks and examine key attributes of potential buyers.
