The Nature Conservancy work globally to protect important lands

The Nature Conservancy is a leading global conservation organisation working to create innovative, on-the-ground solutions to address some of the world’s toughest environmental challenges. The Nature Conservancy works in more than 65 countries, has more than one million members and collaborates closely with partners to protect lands and waters for nature and people.

We have been working with The Nature Conservancy since 2009. For example, the Conservancy helped us to develop a nature-based approach to control pipeline erosion in the Louisiana coastal zone in the US. Also, with our support the Conservancy launched an online tool to monitor migratory species in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, both areas where Shell has operations.

We are currently working with The Nature Conservancy to better understand how investing in natural climate solutions can help address the global climate challenge. This includes exploring how nature-based projects, such as large-scale reforestation, can reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere while improving the livelihoods of local communities and preserving biodiversity and wildlife. These projects can generate carbon credits which are used to compensate for emissions elsewhere as part of a transition to a lower-carbon future.
