Energy systems are changing. This is happening at different rates and with varying complexity around the world. The transition is driven by growing energy demand and an urgent need to curb CO2 emissions.

Shell is working to understand these shifting energy landscapes and to seize the right business opportunities. We are looking to explore – and lay foundations for – a range of new energy models. 

We are playing our part in the transition towards a low-carbon future. We aim to cut the net carbon footprint of our energy products – measured in grams of CO2 per megajoule of energy consumed – by around half by 2050. By 2035 we aim to reduce it by around 20%.

This will be achieved through a range of means including providing lower-carbon fuels, supplying natural gas for power and operating more efficiently.

Our New Energies business, set up in 2016 and focusing on new fuels and power, supports this ambition.
