Shell and human rights

We integrate human rights in our activities by building on the strength of our experience and the benefits of using our existing governance and business management systems.

In some countries we deploy security staff to help keep staff and facilities safe. We are an active member of the Voluntary Principles for Security and Human Rights.

Training, tools and guidelines

We provide our staff, partners and suppliers with knowledge and skills to help support fundamental human rights.

Labour practices

We encourage all our staff to share the core values of honesty, integrity and respect for people.
