The purpose of antitrust laws is to promote and safeguard competition, and to punish anti-competitive behaviour. We have an active antitrust programme in place to identify and resolve any activity that fails to meet our standards of compliance with antitrust laws. It includes mandatory measures people working for Shell must take to prevent antitrust incidents, and training to help them understand their roles and responsibilities. Anyone working for Shell who does not comply with antitrust laws faces disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal or termination of their contract.
Anti-bribery and corruption
Our compliance programme supports Shell’s long-established position against the direct or indirect offering, paying, soliciting or accepting of bribes in any form, including facilitation payments. It includes mandatory procedures and training on topics such as political payments, gifts and hospitality, and conflicts of interest. Anyone working for Shell who does not comply with anti-bribery laws faces disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal or termination of their contract.
