Shell worldwide

Shell was formed in 1907, although our history can be traced back to the first half of the 19th century.

The Chief Executive Officer is Ben van Beurden.

Our purpose

Shell's purpose is to power progress together with more and cleaner energy solutions. We believe that rising standards of living for a growing global population are likely to continue to drive demand for energy, including oil and gas, for years to come. At the same time, the need to tackle climate change means there is a global transition under way to a low-carbon energy system.

Our people

Our people are essential to the successful delivery of the Shell strategy and to sustaining business performance over the long term. Performing competitively in the evolving energy landscape requires competent and empowered people working safely together across Shell.

We believe that diverse teams led by inclusive leaders deliver better safety and business performance.
