Corporate Social Responsibility

For Shell, sustainability means providing essential energy for a growing population in a responsible way. This means being a careful and good neighbor by contributing to the well-being of communities where we work and live, which falls into Shell’s commitment to corporate social responsibility. Environmental Stewardship is one way Shell has continued to share benefits with communities over the past 100 years.

Environmental Stewardship

Shell strategically invests in conservation initiatives that are guided by scientific understanding and research of the environmental impact of our operations and address community-specific challenges and needs generated by our presence. In the last two decades, Shell Oil Company has helped restore and protect more than 13 million acres of wetlands, installed nature-based infrastructure solutions to mitigate flooding and slow coastal erosion, created artificial reefs to promote wildlife and support local economies, cleaned miles of shoreline with Shell volunteers removing 600,000 pounds of debris, and conserved more than 1.8 million acres of land. We also have shared much of the data we have collected so that others can learn from and leverage our efforts.
