Shell Environmental Products’ project portfolio
Our Environmental Products team hold a portfolio of voluntary carbon credits sourced from high-quality projects around the world.
These projects have been chosen because they have demonstrated clear climate and environmental benefits. We also carefully select projects that bring local community benefits, such as improving local health and education, aiming to reduce poverty, and promoting gender equality.
The map shows the projects Shell had in its voluntary carbon credit portfolio in October 2019. We continue to expand our portfolio.
How we choose the projects
All our projects are independently certified by internationally recognised standards. The accreditation process requires the projects to demonstrate all the benefits that are claimed while ensuring projects only receive certificates for the reduced or eliminated carbon emissions.
Benefits of projects in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
In addition to reducing CO₂ from the atmosphere, the projects we choose create jobs, protect and enhance biodiversity and can improve soil quality, food production, and rainwater absorption. All of these beneficial effects support attainment of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
