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 are supporting transparency in the payments we make to governments and helping them to better manage oil and gas revenues.
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.
