Shell speaks to Congress about energy and climate
Meeting the demand for reliable energy – while simultaneously addressing climate change – is a huge undertaking and one of the defining challenges of our time. As an energy company with more than a 100-year history in the United States, Shell wants to play its part. In October 2021, President Gretchen Watkins spoke to the House Oversight and Reform Committee on behalf of Shell Oil Company to relay this message.
Shell’s strategy to accelerate the transition of our business to net-zero emissions, in step with society. Powering Progress is designed to create value for shareholders, customers and wider society.
The global energy system is changing. A planet destined for more people and rising living standards will need more energy. But the world must also find ways to reduce carbon emissions and tackle climate change. Shell’s New Energies business focuses on new fuels and power.
