Shell’s road safety programmes for local adults and schoolchildren help to address challenges around road accidents and fatalities in many different locations. These programmes are based on the advice provided by Shell’s dedicated road safety team.
Through the Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP), we work with international agencies, companies and governments on practical projects to reduce road accidents. We also take part in the Global Road Safety Initiative (GRSI), established by GRSP, which aims to improve road safety in targeted developing countries. Shell chairs and partly funds the initiative.
GRSI works across eight countries involving local organisations to implement programmes. Its “Safe to School – Safe to Home” project focuses on making sure that children travel or walk safely between home and school. We have replicated this programme close to our operations in Nigeria, Vietnam and Iraq.
We support the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety by participating in these projects at national and local level, focusing on high-risk environments.
