Shell is aiming to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050 or sooner

Date: 03 December 2020

Shell is working to offer customers more, lower-carbon products, from renewable electricity to hydrogen. They aim to reduce the carbon intensity of the energy products they sell by 30% by 2035 and by 65% by 2050 compared with 2016, keeping in pace with society.

With this approach, thet want to contribute to achieving a net-zero world, where society stops adding to the amount of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere.

This supports the most ambitious goal to tackle climate change laid out in the Paris Agreement: to limit the rise in average global warming to 1.5°Celsius.

It is going to take a lot of work. And, today, Shell’s business plans will not get them to where they want to be. They are on a journey and recognise the need to change and must also work with their customers as they make changes too.

Shell is improving their own operations over time, addressing energy efficiency and capturing or offsetting unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions.

Most GHG emissions come from their customers’ use of their products. So they are also looking for ways to help customers cut their GHG emissions.
