The world needs to produce enough energy to keep economies growing, while reducing the impact of energy use on a planet threatened by climate change. Shell works to help meet rising energy demand in a responsible way. That means operating safely, minimising our impact on the environment and building trust with the communities who are our neighbours. If we fall short of the standards society expects of us, we learn from our experiences to improve the way we operate.

Building a sustainable energy future

The world is at the beginning of a transformation in energy use.

Sustainable development and our business strategy

Energy sustains our daily lives and powers progress around the globe.

Living by our principles

Our business principles are the foundation for the way we work.


Safety is critical to the responsible delivery of energy.


Working with our neighbours helps us share the benefits of our activities.


As we work to help meet the world’s growing energy needs, we aim to reduce the environmental impact of our operations.

Climate change

The world faces the critical challenge of how to meet rising demand for the energy that powers economies, while urgently cutting the emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) that energy use generates.
