Meeting the world’s growing energy needs and protecting the environment requires new technology, partnerships and ways of operating. We continually look for ways to limit the environmental impact of our operations.


In 2000, Shell Gabon established a partnership with the Smithsonian Institute for a biodiversity monitoring program in the Gamba Protected Areas of Gabon.


We supply energy which helps support economic growth and development, and work with communities where we operate to address concerns and share the benefits or our operations.

Sustainable Development

For Shell, contributing to sustainable development means helping to meet the world's growing need for energy in economically, socially and environmentally responsible ways.


Safety is always our first priority. We aim to have zero fatalities and no incidents that harm people, or put our neighbours or facilities at risk.

Shell sustainability report

We began reporting voluntarily on our environmental performance with the first Shell Report that covered 1997. We do it to be open and honest, and to show how we are contributing to sustainable development. The Shell Sustainability Report 2012, published April 11, 2013, is our 16th report.
