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.

Environment

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

Communities

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

Safety

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

Transparency

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