BP's Record

From a press release from the Sunlight Foundation:

"Today, the Sunlight Foundation’s Reporting Group published an analysis that shows British Petroleum was blamed for roughly 8,000 reported incidents of spills, emissions and leaks of oil, chemicals and gases into the environment (http://reporting.sunlightfoundation.com/2010/british-petroleum/). This analysis is based on data collected by the National Resource Data from reports filed by the company reporting on itself, whistleblowers and the public."

By the way, the Sunlight Foundation does marvelous work in the area of making government more transparent.
