Meet Starship, an innovative step towards reducing emissions and increasing overall efficiency and fuel economy in the transport sector. This next-generation truck features a custom, aerodynamic design and aims to demonstrate improvements in fuel economy for class 8 trucks while lowering CO2 emissions.
Next month, the Starship truck will embark from San Diego on a 2,150-mile, seven-day promotional trip to Jacksonville, Florida, hauling about 40,000 pounds of recycled concrete destined to create an artificial reef, in partnership with the Coastal Conservation Association and Building Conservation Trust. Learn more about Starship.
One way we have achieved sustainable solutions in the United States is through environmental stewardship – which for 100 years has enabled us to help protect and preserve the communities where we work and live. Since 1999, Shell has focused our partnerships with many key environmental NGOs in the U.S. to protect more than 13 million acres of wetlands, clean and remove 600,000 pounds of debris from shoreline with the help of Shell volunteers, and conserve more than 1.8 million acres of critical habitat.
