Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemical companies employing 93,000 people in more than 90 countries. We help meet the world’s demand for energy in economically, environmentally and socially responsible ways. Our innovative approach ensures we are ready to help tackle the challenges of the new energy future.

Global energy demand is expected to double by 2050, as the world’s population soars and more people gain access to energy. Yet CO2 emissions must be halved to avoid serious climate change. A range of sources will be needed to meet rising global energy demand over the coming decades. We believe that renewable sources could provide 30% of the world’s energy by 2050. But fossil fuels will still meet the bulk of energy demand.

Human ingenuity and new technology hold the key to unlocking the energy consumers need to power their lives in the years ahead. At the same time, they help us to limit our impact on the environment and find effective ways to engage with communities near our operations. At Shell, we are working to help meet this future energy need responsibly by delivering more and cleaner energy, and by offering our customers energy-efficient products. We work with customers and partners to apply innovative thinking across our businesses, now and for the future.
