We support community development projects directly, as well as indirectly through the independent Shell Foundation. Our aim is to work with communities to understand local needs and address social or economic issues relevant to our business, such as access to energy, enterprise development and road safety. Many of the programmes we support aim to be self-sustaining, for example by helping young people to set up businesses or providing training for jobs. Our staff contribute by volunteering on social and environmental projects around the world.
For bright students in Nigeria scholarships provide a stepping stone to a better future, while a unique circus brings science alive for Australian schoolchildren.
Our staff support research projects, such as the impact of deforestation in Borneo, and share their business expertise with World Heritage Site managers around the world.
