We were one of the first energy companies to acknowledge the threat of climate change, to call for action by governments, our industry and energy users, and to take action ourselves.

The number of cars on the road is expected to triple by 2050. The world will need all the sustainable transport fuel options available to help meet this growing demand, with fewer CO2 emissions. We believe that blending these fuels with sustainable biofuels offers the best, commercially viable way to reduce CO2 emissions from road transport fuels over the next 20 years. In 2011 we established the Raizen joint venture with Cosan.
Our performance data
Tracking our performance against a range of environmental and social indicators helps us to focus our efforts to improve into the future. We participate in the Carbon Disclosure Project and are included in the FTSE4Good Index.
Standards and requirements
We have clear requirements for safety, environmental and social performance, based on our Business Principles and Code of Conduct. This includes a set of standards and manuals covering requirements for road and process safety, biodiversity, managing greenhouse gas emissions, and respecting the human rights of our neighbours as we work to provide security.
External voluntary initiatives
In addition to our own Shell Business Principles, our reporting is guided by the major external voluntary codes and principles that Shell supports.
We aim to have zero fatalities and to prevent accidents that put our people, neighbours and facilities at risk.
