The energy transition is a decades-long challenge that acknowledges we will need oil and gas in the medium-term. We’ll need it in Canada, and we’ll need it globally. It is important that we keep driving down the carbon footprint of that production as we move forward to a cleaner energy future.

Shell wants to play its part in the energy transition and intends to reduce its net carbon footprint in step with society as it moves towards the goal of the Paris Agreement.

Not only are we reducing the carbon intensity of our operations, we are investing in clean energy infrastructure – low-carbon technologies and businesses that will be necessary to enable the energy transition.
