In response to the report by Lord Davies of Abersoch published in February 2011 entitled ‘Women on Boards’ (the ‘Davies Report’), the Board of Royal Dutch Shell plc has issued the following statement:

“The Board welcomed the Davies Report on Women on Boards and its recommendations. The Board and the senior succession planning of the Company in general takes into consideration a number of factors including gender and other diversity criteria: by 2015 it is expected that at least 25% of the Directors will be women, as recommended by the Report.”
