Drive Carbon Neutral

We understand the many challenges today’s fleets face on the road to a lower carbon future. Whether you’re just starting to consider alternative fuels or already have electric vehicles, your fleet will produce emissions that are just unavoidable. And that’s where our new carbon offsetting service can help.

 

It's easy; sign-up and your fleet can drive carbon neutral, simply by using the Shell Fleet Navigator or Shell Fleet Plus card. Shell takes care of the rest, offsetting your fleet's unavoidable carbon emissions through the purchase of carbon credits from a portfolio of carefully chosen nature-based projects – such as forest developments or grassland preservation projects – that capture and store carbon from the atmosphere.

How does it work?

  • You opt-in to offset for carbon emissions from your fleet. Your drivers use the Shell Fleet Navigator or Shell Fleet Plus card to refuel at Shell locations in Canada as usual.

  • Shell tracks your fleet's overall fuel consumption and calculates the associated lifecycle CO₂ emissions, which will be applied to your account or invoiced separately.

  • Shell will purchase carbon credits equivalent to the amount of your fleet's carbon emissions to offset them through Shell’s global portfolio of nature-based solutions projects.

  • Shell will issue an annual verified carbon reduction certificate confirming that the fuel has been offset.

You don’t even have to change the way you work – Shell automatically calculates your lifecycle carbon emissions and offsets these through Shell’s global portfolio of nature-based solutions projects.

Working with Nature

Darkwoods Forest Carbon Project, British Columbia

The Darkwoods Forest Carbon Project is an initiative of the Nature Conservancy of Canada that markets carbon credits generated from the Darkwoods Conservation Area.

Project Cordillera Azul, Peru

The Cordillera Azul project protects up to 1.6 million hectares of threatened rainforest habitat, safeguarding 28 High Conservation Value species that live in the habitat.

Katingan Mentaya, Indonesia

The Katingan Project collaborates with 34 Indonesian villages to not only reduce emissions, but to conserve local wildlife populations and enable the sustainable development of the local community.

Disclaimer

The terms “Carbon Neutral”, “Carbon Offset” or “Carbon offset compensation” are applied in a non-technical way to indicate that Shell has engaged in a transaction to ensure that an amount of carbon dioxide equivalent to that associated with the production, delivery and usage of the fuel has been removed from the atmosphere through a nature-based process or emissions saved through avoided deforestation”
