From humble beginnings as a family-run shop selling exotic seashells, Royal Dutch Shell has become the world’s largest fuels retailer – operating filling stations that serve over 30 million people daily. Though best-known today for its convenience-focused refueling stations, Shell’s vast reach also encompasses marine, aviation, chemical, gas, and low-carbon fuel operations. The company employs over 80,000 people across more than 70 countries. The company is publicly preparing for a transition to lower-carbon energy, and published a scenario detailing how society could meet the requirements of the Paris climate change agreement by 2070. Shell wants to play their part in the global effort to tackle climate change and meet carbon control goals. Sustainability is a key pillar for Shell going forward; it aims to cut carbon emissions in half by 2050. Shell is also committed to investing in renewable energy sources, as seen with its development of wind farms in the United States and the Netherlands, and in its acquisition of Europe’s largest electronic vehicle charging network, NewMotion. Royal Dutch Shell is listed on the London Stock Exchange and Euronext Amsterdam.
