Shell is an international energy company with expertise in the exploration, production, refining and marketing of oil and natural gas, and the manufacturing and marketing of chemicals. We use advanced technologies and take an innovative approach to help build a sustainable energy future. We also invest in power, including from low-carbon sources such as wind and solar; and new fuels for transport, such as advanced biofuels and hydrogen.
Shell’s purpose is to power progress together with more and cleaner energy solutions. We believe that rising standards of living for a growing global population are likely to continue to drive demand for energy, including oil and gas, for years to come. At the same time, the need to tackle climate change means there is a global transition under way to a low-carbon energy system. Powering Progress is underpinned by our core values of honesty, integrity and respect for people, and our focus on safety. These include our commitment to doing business in an ethical and transparent way.
Our people are essential to the successful delivery of the Shell strategy and to sustaining business performance over the long term. Performing competitively in the evolving energy landscape requires competent and empowered people working safely together across Shell. We believe that diverse teams led by inclusive leaders deliver better safety and business performance.
Shell is changing to be more focused, more resilient and more competitive – not just for the energy system of today, but for the energy system of the future.
