shell_alaska_dutch_harbourRoyal Dutch Shell has published its 2017 Sustainability Report. The report outlines Shell’s approach to sustainability and covers the company’s social, safety and environmental performance in 2017.

It sets out how Shell is playing a role in the energy transition and details Shell’s contribution to society, which includes providing people with access to energy products. The company also contributes through paying taxes, procuring local goods and services, hiring locally and supporting social investment programmes.

In his introduction to the 2017 Sustainability Report, Shell’s Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden writes:

‘Sustainability is essential to the way we do business. Our Sustainability Report is an account of our progress in this area as we continue to deliver energy products society needs in the transition to a low-carbon world.’

This is the 21st edition of the Shell Sustainability Report. Shell has used external review panels to strengthen its sustainability reporting since 2005. They help the company evaluate the quality and credibility of the Sustainability Report and improve its reporting. The 2017 panel comprises six sustainability and corporate reporting experts.

Shell has also published details of payments made to governments in 2017 in countries where it has upstream operations. This report, which details payments in 29 countries, is prepared in accordance with the UK’s Reports on Payments to Governments Regulations 2014.
