Voluntary Emissios Reduction Projects

Supporting your carbon neutrality ambitions

Shell provides your business with several options to manage your carbon footprint. We hold a portfolio of high quality carbon offsets sourced from projects around the world. These projects have been selected for their demonstrated climate and environmental benefits, some of which also benefit local communities, improve local health and education, aim to reduce poverty and promote gender equality.
