Shell Mamplasan operations to be powered by renewable energy
Nov 16, 2022
(Shell SLEX NB Mamplasan, Biñan Laguna), November 16, 2022 - Shell Mamplasan mobility site, located at South Luzon Expressway, Biñan, Laguna will be powered by renewable energy from Shell Energy Philippines (SEPH). The station with Shell Recharge charging points will be powered through a mix of solar, geothermal, and hydro energies.
Lorelie Quiambao-Osial, Country Chair for Shell companies in the Philippines, said, “The switching to renewable energy at our operations shows our commitment to reducing our own carbon emissions. We continue to work with partners in the decarbonization journey as we transition to a lower carbon economy.”
Shell Mamplasan is the second Shell mobility site to be powered by renewable energy from SEPH. The first one was Shell North Luzon Tollway 1 (NLT1) in Balagtas, Bulacan.
In 2020, Shell began transforming its retail fuel stations into one-stop mobility destinations featuring sustainable solutions. These solutions help reduce energy consumption by approximately 30%, as compared to a traditional site.

Shell’s Net Carbon Footprint
Also, in this announcement we may refer to Shell’s “Net Carbon Footprint” or “Net Carbon Intensity”, which include Shell’s carbon emissions from the production of our energy products, our suppliers’ carbon emissions in supplying energy for that production and our customers’ carbon emissions associated with their use of the energy products we sell. Shell only controls its own emissions. The use of the term Shell’s “Net Carbon Footprint” or “Net Carbon Intensity” are for convenience only and not intended to suggest these emissions are those of Shell plc or its subsidiaries.
Shell’s Net-Zero Emissions Target
Shell’s operating plan, outlook and budgets are forecasted for a ten-year period and are updated every year. They reflect the current economic environment and what we can reasonably expect to see over the next ten years. Accordingly, they reflect our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Net Carbon Footprint (NCF) targets over the next ten years. However, Shell’s operating plans cannot reflect our 2050 net-zero emissions target and 2035 NCF target, as these targets are currently outside our planning period. In the future, as society moves towards net-zero emissions, we expect Shell’s operating plans to reflect this movement. However, if society is not net zero in 2050, as of today, there would be significant risk that Shell may not meet this target.
