Our approach to powering lives

Shell is dedicated to making a positive impact on people around the world, and Powering Lives explains how we do that. 

People’s lives are better with energy. It provides things like warmth and light, cooked food and transport. We deliver this for millions of people around the world every day and are working to provide energy to those who don’t yet have it.  

We also want to help communities benefit from having us as their neighbour. We generate millions of jobs, pay billions in tax each year and support start-ups, local businesses and education programmes.  And we champion human rights in communities, companies and organisations we work with. This includes activities such as advancing worker welfare and shaping an inclusive world so that everyone can be themselves.
