Indigenous peoples

Our activities can affect Indigenous Peoples who hold specific rights for the protection of their cultures, traditional ways of life and special connections to land and water. We seek the support and agreement of Indigenous peoples potentially affected by our projects. We do this through dialogue and impact management processes.

Shell has also developed a public position statement on Free Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC), a principle recognised in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. It entails open dialogue, good-faith negotiations, and where appropriate, the development of agreements that address the needs of Indigenous Peoples.
