Inside Communities

Working with communities

We work closely with communities to understand their concerns and identify how to address them. 

Investing in access to energy for communities

Achieving universal energy access by 2030 will require a mix of commercial investment and community programmes tailored to those who cannot access or afford energy solutions without support.

Local employment and enterprise

Shell contributes to local economic growth in countries where we operate. 

Community health

We run projects, often in partnership with local NGOs or development bodies, that provide people in communities with access to adequate healthcare.

 

Education

Education can open the door to opportunities and help people build a better future.
