Shell shares ideas on putting sustainability to work for businesses

Shell and other leading companies will gather at a national conference to share ideas on accelerating sustainability in energy and water usage.
Accelerating Sustainability

By 2030, the world will need 30 percent more water and 40 percent more energy to meet demands from a growing global population and rising middle class.

On May 5th - 6th, Mary Grace Anderson, Vice President for Safety, Environment & Social Performance for Upstream Americas, will explain how Shell is planning for a resource strained future by producing more, cleaner and smarter energy with the smallest water footprint possible at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Accelerating Sustainability conference in Washington DC. 

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is hosting this forum in partnership with the US Business Council for Sustainable Development, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and SustainAbility in order to bring together leaders from the private, public, and nonprofit sectors to explore enhanced, scaled collaboration and sustainability-driven innovation. 

Shell’s support and participation in this forum is part of our strategic partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation focused on exploring ways that innovative sustainability strategies can help to meet global energy demand through collaboration.

This is one example of how Shell is raising the bar for how businesses can develop the world’s energy resources - safely, sustainably and responsibly. Learn more about how Shell is changing the game by reading our sustainability report, our work on the stress nexus and New Lens Scenarios.

For those unable to attend in person, the forum can be viewed live online.
