Sustainability – our approach
Our approach to sustainability starts with running a safe, efficient, responsible and profitable business. We work to share wider benefits where we operate. And we’re helping to shape a more sustainable energy future.
Inside Sustainability – our approach
Shell wants to contribute to the global effort to tackle climate change and meet the goal of the Paris Agreement. Working towards our Net Carbon Footprint ambition is how we plan to do this.
Powering Progress sets out Shell’s strategy to accelerate the transition of our business to net-zero emissions, in step with society. It is designed to integrate sustainability with our business strategy.
The UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) seek to address the world’s biggest challenges. We welcome the SDGs and aim to play our part in helping governments and societies to achieve them.
Our comprehensive set of codes, policies and assurance processes define how we aim to operate in socially and environmentally responsible ways.
We assess the potential impacts of our activities to manage and reduce their effects on the environment and local communities.
Shell works with environmental and developmental organisations all over the world. This helps us to reduce our environmental and societal impact, to improve the quality of land and water around our operations and to benefit local communities.
