Sustainable development in Shell

We are working to produce cleaner energy, to create social benefits, and to integrate social and environmental concerns into the way we do business.


Through partnerships with environmental experts and by using new technologies, we are finding ways to help limit the impact of our operations on the environment.


We supply energy to help support economic growth and development. We work with communities near to our operations to address concerns and share the benefits of our operations, upholding our reputation and protecting our business.


Safety is always our top priority. Find out how we work to protect our people, neighbours and facilities.

Sustainability Report

We began reporting voluntarily on our environmental performance with the first Shell Sustainability Report that covered 1997. We do it to be open and honest, and to show how we are contributing to sustainable development. The Shell Sustainability Report 2014, published April 10, 2015, is our 18th report.

Our performance

We track our performance against a range of environmental and social indicators, to help us continuously improve our performance.
