The world must meet this increasing demand for energy whilst bringing down greenhouse gases and improving the quality of the air people breathe.
This requires a transition from a high carbon system to a more sustainable, lower carbon one, and Shell’s new ambition is to be a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050, or sooner.
Shell is a willing and able player in this transition. We are investing in renewable energy like solar, wind and advanced biofuels made from waste. We are also exploring new ways of storing renewable energy and developing digital products and services to help consumers and businesses use energy more efficiently. And we continue to supply the world with natural gas - the cleanest burning hydrocarbon - to heat and light homes and to power industry.
#MakeTheFuture showcases these on-going actions that Shell is taking to help create this more sustainable energy-rich, lower carbon future.
