Sustainability – our approach

Our approach to sustainability starts with running a safe, efficient, responsible and profitable business, bringing wider benefits to the areas where we operate.


Shell provides energy responsibly, helping the world move towards a future in which the energy we use causes minimal impact on our planet.


We aim to be a good neighbour wherever we work, by contributing to the well-being of neighbouring communities. 


We are committed to delivering energy responsibly and safely, preventing harm to our employees, contractors, local communities and the environment.


Doing business in a clear, open and transparent way is a commitment we work hard to keep.
