ENERGY FOR A CHANGING WORLD
Today and in the future, people must develop the energy resources needed to power progress while preserving the health of the planet.
For Shell that means: More energy. Cleaner energy. A smarter, more efficient use of energy.
Demand for energy is expected to double in the first half of this century. By 2050, there will be 9 billion people on the planet, 2 billion more than today.
Hundreds of millions will begin to use computers, drive cars, fly for the first time.
A changing world will need a broad mix of energy. Renewable sources such as biofuels, wind and solar will become increasingly important. And fossil fuels will play a key role, providing around two-thirds of the world’s supply in 2050.
Shell will help meet this future demand. For over 100 years our yellow-and-red emblem, the Pecten, has stood for the safe, responsible delivery of energy.
And a pioneering spirit. Using innovative technologies, we produce more than 3 million barrels of oil and natural gas every day. We operate safely in some of the world’s toughest conditions: in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico, in the subarctic temperatures of Russia’s far east, in the deserts of the Middle East.
Energy for the future must be cleaner. We deliver cleaner-burning natural gas to more countries than any other energy company, and our fuels and lubricants are increasingly efficient. We help produce low-carbon biofuel. And the petrochemicals we produce help make many everyday items: from clothes to shampoo, to plastics for essentials such as computers and cars.
Energy, in so many forms, sustains our daily lives.
