Environ­mental and social partners

Shell works in partnership with environmental and developmental organisations. These collaborations bring important insights to our work.

We work in partnerships to help reduce our environmental and societal impact, to improve the quality of land and water around our operations and to enhance benefits to local communities by implementing social investment programmes.

The map below shows an overview of how we work with our partners around the world. You can read about this work in detail over the next two pages.
