Making carbon compensation work for your fleet

At Shell Fleet Solutions, we understand the many challenges facing today’s fleets on the road to a lower carbon future, so we are developing a variety of ways to help – from fast, reliable electric vehicle (EV) charging to lower emissions fuels.

Yet however strong your focus on sustainability, your fleet is likely to produce some unavoidable emissions even after adopting new fuels and technology. Mitigating those emissions can play a key role in your low-carbon planning. We have high-quality nature-based solutions, independently verified to determine their carbon impact and their social and biodiversity benefits.

And the Shell Card makes the process simple and cost-effective.

Good for the environment and good for your business

As well as helping to address your fleet’s environmental impact, CO2e compensation also has a number of clear business benefits:

  • Demonstrate corporate leadership
  • Appeal to your customers and employees
  • Meet your carbon emissions commitments
  • Create long-term sustainability value for your business

How carbon compensation at Shell works

  • Step 1

    Step 1

    You opt-in to compensate the CO2e emissions from your fleet. Your drivers use the Shell Card to refuel as usual

  • Step 2

    Step 2

    Shell tracks your fleet’s overall fuel consumption and calculates the associated well-to-wheel CO2e emissions

  • Step 3

    Step 3

    Shell offsets these emissions through our global portfolio of nature-based projects

  • Step 4

    Step 4

    Shell will purchase carbon credits equivalent to the amount of your fleet’s emissions and issue a yearly retirement certification confirming that the fuel has been offset. Charges will be applied to your account

If customers choose to offset their fuel emissions, they will pay a fee for the CO₂e offsets for the emissions from their use of fuel.
