Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies. With approximately 93,000 employees in over 70 countries, our aim is to help meet the world’s growing demand for energy in economically, environmentally and socially responsible ways.
Energy fuels both the global economy and our everyday lives, and with a global improvement of living standards and population growth, we see the continued rise in demand for energy. The big challenge is how to provide more energy while at the same time significantly reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. This is what we call the energy challenge.
We recognize the significance of climate change, along with the role energy plays in helping people achieve and maintain a good quality of life. A key role for society—and for Shell—is to provide much more energy with less carbon dioxide. This global energy transition therefore requires a huge undertaking: producing and consuming energy in a different way. We need to design our economies, communities, and lives to thrive on these energy systems.
The world needs to find lower-carbon ways to produce and consume energy. For Shell, in the short term, this means growing our natural gas business. Natural gas can make an important contribution to the energy transition. It is abundant, versatile and cleaner-burning than coal, producing around half the CO2 emissions of coal when burnt to generate electricity.
Over the longer term, we plan to develop a new and profitable lower-carbon new energies business. We have invested in the past, and we intend to continue to invest in new opportunities at scale in the future. New energies cover several important themes: new fuels for mobility, such as biofuels and hydrogen; integrated energy solutions, and connecting customers with new business models for energy.
A career with Shell is more than just a day job. It’s an opportunity to join a company that tackles the challenge of meeting the world’s rising energy needs, thanks to its people’s experience, expertise and innovative approach.
