The world today is exciting, dynamic and fast-moving. All of which are made possible by energy. Energy is a critical component in this modern day and age. It takes us to places; it delivers products from all around the world. Energy is a key factor that helps us power through our daily lives.

As the world’s population continues to grow and thrive, the need for energy exponentially increases. The energy to refrigerate food and help preserve medicines. The energy to build roads and make hospitals. The energy to create plastics, fuels, and fertilizers.

But this increasing demand adds to the ever-present rising environmental pressures. The production and use of energy contribute to climate change and pollution­­­­­­—all of which brings harm to our environment. The challenge is clear: the world must meet rising energy demand while bringing down greenhouse gases and improving the quality of the air people breathe.

This means innovating and changing the ways on how the world produces and consumes energy. From a high-carbon system to a highly sustainable, low-carbon emission one.

Shell is a willing and adept player in this breakthrough transition. We analyze and assess how our company can make a difference in different areas. We created the NXplorers, a global programme that encourages students to participate in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) courses

We continue to supply the world with natural gas—the cleanest burning hydrocarbon— to give heat and light to homes, and to bring power to multiple industries.

We are investing in renewable energy like solar, wind, and advanced biofuels made from waste. We consistently explore new innovative ways of storing and harnessing renewable energy. Projects like the Shell Eco-Marathon, where the young and bright minds of today congregate to share their ideas to create a sustainable future, is a statement to this vision.

We believe in the minds and the potential of our youth. Challenging their creativity in both arts and science. Giving them opportunities to change the world with their ideas and youthful bliss.

We are developing digital products and services that help consumers and businesses use energy more efficiently, day in and day out.

#MakeTheFuture showcases the on-going actions Shell is taking to help create a more sustainable, energy-rich, lower-carbon future.

Energy that Makes the Future

When you think of Shell, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Cars? Fuels? Shell is a lot more than just fueling people so they can get from one place to another. It’s all about energy. Energy that moves people forward in every way possible. Everyone today is in need of a little energy to create something great for the future. And that’s what Shell strives to do – power progress for the Philippines and help dreams come true.

That’s energy that makes the future.

Turning gravity into light

Harnessing kinetic energy from the gravity of falling rocks, GravityLight produces a safe, renewable source of light to those with no access to electricity.

Empowering a community through footsteps

To help empower a small community in the heart of Rio de Janeiro we created the world’s first player-powered football pitch floodlights.


A new spin on efficiency

What if we could capture the wind created by passing cars with roadside turbines, and turn it into usable energy?

The energy future

We are using our know-how, technology and innovation to deliver more and cleaner energy for the world's growing population.
