How we offset the remaining emissions

While avoid and reduce measures offer the best way to tackle emissions in the long term, until scalable solutions are deployed, carbon offsetting programs provide an immediate solution to reduce GHG emissions. Shell wants to offer a worldwide portfolio of carbon neutral1 lubricants for a wide variety of applications spanning both personal and commercial use. To support this effort, Shell Helix is working to offset the emissions of every litre of premium lubricant, across premium passenger car motor oil.

1 “Carbon neutral” indicates that Shell has engaged in a transaction where an amount of CO2 equivalent to the CO2e amount associated with the raw material extraction, transport, production, distribution, usage and end-of-life of the Lubricants has been avoided as emissions through the protection of natural ecosystems or removed from the atmosphere through a nature-based process. CO2e (CO2 equivalent) refers to CO2, CH4, N2O.

Avoid emissions

Avoid emissions by optimising the efficiency of our production process and product design and by aiming to embed circular economy thinking at the heart of our lubricants business.

Reduce emissions

Reduce emissions by improving the energy efficiency of our facilities and increasing the use of renewable energy to help reduce the CO2 emissions of our supply chain.
