Shell began reporting voluntarily on our environmental performance with the first “Shell Report” that covered 1997. We do it to be open and honest, and to show how we are contributing to sustainable development. We have continued to develop this reporting and the Shell Sustainability Report 2016, published April 18, 2016, is our 19th report.

We also publish performance data used within the Sustainability report online in tabular format together with sustainability rankings in our performance data section.
