Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemical companies. Our aim is to help meet the energy needs of society in ways that are economically, environmentally and socially responsible.
Introduction from the CEO
At Shell we believe that in making our contribution, there is no time to waste. We are working on what we can do today to contribute to a sustainable energy future.
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.
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.
Building a sustainable energy system
Energy powers economic growth, raising living standards and lifting millions from poverty. Demand for energy is increasing, but so are the global environmental stresses linked to meeting this demand.
Producing cleaner energy
Cleaner-burning natural gas is essential in meeting demand as the world builds a sustainable energy system. Natural gas for power generation significantly reduces CO2 emissions compared to coal and produces fewer pollutants.
Delivering energy responsibly
The world’s easy-to-access oil is becoming more scarce. To help meet rising energy demand, we are exploring for and increasing production from locations that can pose complex technical, environmental and social challenges.
