Achieve Your Fleet Sustainability Goals

Learn how Shell can help you meet your fleet sustainability ambitions.

What is Sustainability?

Sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”

As an energy supplier, we recognize that more must be done to tackle the challenge of climate change and work to make our business more sustainable. That’s why Shell aims to establish pathways towards net-zero emissions by 2050 in collaboration with those sectors that utilize our energy products.

We will seek to achieve our ambition in three ways:

  1. Own operations: net-zero emissions
    Reduce the emissions from the manufacture of all our products1 to net-zero by 2050 or sooner
  2. Energy products: carbon intensity in line with 1.5°C
    Reduce the Net Carbon Footprint2 of the energy products we sell by 30% by 2035 and by 65% by 2050. This is consistent with society’s ambition to achieve a 1.5°C future
  3. Remaining customer emissions: fully mitigated
    Work with customers to reduce the emissions from their use of our energy products3 to net-zero by 2050 or sooner

At Shell Lubricant Solutions, we work with our partners, customers and suppliers and our policy makers, academics and entrepreneurs to keep the world moving successfully with cleaner solutions, aiming to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. With the right technology and expert advice, Shell is dedicated to helping your fleets successfully manage their energy transition to cut costs, reduce emissions and improve efficiency.


1 Refers to the Scope 1 and 2 emissions in absolute terms associated with operations under direct Shell control
2 The Net Carbon Footprint (NCF) is a weighted average of the lifecycle CO₂ intensities of different energy products sold by Shell normalizing them to the same point relative to their final end-use. The calculation includes all emissions associated with bringing these energy products to the market as well as our customers’ emissions from using them
3 Refers to the Scope 3 emissions in absolute terms associated with the use by customers of the energy products Shell sells.
