We are supporting transparency in the payments we make to governments and helping them to better manage oil and gas revenues.
Doing business in a clear, open way is a commitment we work hard to keep, and we promote transparency where possible throughout our industry.
We have the responsibility and are committed to respect human rights with a strong focus on communities, security, labour rights and supply chain conditions.
Paying taxes in the countries where we operate is about more than complying with the law. It provides governments with opportunity to generate revenues, support economic growth and enhance social development.
The Shell General Business Principles state our insistence on honesty, integrity and fairness in all aspects of our business. The direct or indirect offer, payment, solicitation or acceptance of bribes is unacceptable.
We share our technical expertise and have stepped up our advocacy efforts with governments.
The Shell General Business Principles and Shell Code of Conduct guide the business activities of Shell companies. We also support a number of external voluntary codes.
