SHELL WORKS WITH PARTNERS, COMMUNITIES AND GOVERNMENTS TO HELP MEET RISING ENERGY DEMAND MORE SUSTAINABLY FOR OUR CUSTOMERS. THIS APPROACH HELPS US OPERATE IN ECONOMICALLY, ENVIRONMENTALLY AND SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE WAYS AND EMBED THESE ASPECTS IN OUR BUSINESS DECISIONS. OUR PRINCIPLES AND STANDARDS GOVERN THE WAY WE WORK.
Sustainable development and our business strategy
Sustainable development for Shell means considering both short- and long-term interests, and integrating economic, environmental and social considerations into our decision making.
Sustainable development in our projects and operations
Through experience we have learned that we must integrate early in our decision-making the interests and concerns of others, including our neighbours.
Events in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 served as a stark reminder of why we invest so much time and effort to plan and execute our operations responsibly.
Environmental challenges are growing as the world’s need for energy increases.
Wherever we operate we are part of a community. Our energy projects and facilities bring jobs and other benefits, but they can also raise concerns.
Living by our principles
Our business principles govern how we operate.
