Carbon credits come of age

The need for a robust market in voluntary carbon credits has never been greater. Over 1,100 leading companies have already made net-zero emissions commitments for 2050. Many will need to use carbon offsetting alongside avoiding and reducing emissions to make the progress necessary today. Carbon credits are also an efficient means of moving capital from developed to developing countries and into vital new carbon sinks - protecting nature and innovating for new emission capture technologies. For all of this to succeed the market will need strong collaboration, and Shell is playing its role.

Nature-based solutions

The world needs a range of measures to limit carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions while meeting rising energy demand. They include the protection and restoration of natural ecosystems such as forests, grasslands and wetlands. Shell offers nature-based voluntary carbon credits bundled with some of our products to help customers meet their own sustainability goals.

Let's close the gap

According to our research, 95% of Shell Environmental Products’ customers are actively reducing their carbon footprint by adopting cleaner technologies and innovations before they consider carbon offsets. Every journey towards net zero is unique. For Shell, carbon credits can play an important role. If you're avoiding and reducing emmisions, but want to do more carbon offsetting with Shell can help you close the gap.

“To achieve net zero, companies will need to decarbonise and many will need to offset some emissions as part of the transition, creating a surge in demand for offsets.”
