How does it work?

  • You opt-in to compensate the CO₂e emissions for your plant or fleet with every purchase of fuels from Shell

  • Shell tracks your plant or fleet’s overall fuel consumption and calculates the associated CO₂e emissions

  • Shell offsets these emissions against our global portfolio of nature-based projects. Shell purchases carbon credits equivalent to the amount of your plant or fleet’s emissions

  • Shell issues an annual Shell carbon reduction certificate confirming that the fuel has been compensated.

Shell automatically calculates your well-to-wheel carbon emissions and offsets these through Shell’s global portfolio of nature-based solutions projects.

1 CO₂ compensation does not imply that there is no environmental impact from the production and use of the product as associated emissions remain in the atmosphere. CO₂ compensation is not a substitute for switching to lower emission energy solutions or reducing the use of fossil fuels. Shell businesses focus first on emissions that can be avoided or reduced and only then, compensate the remaining emissions. “Carbon neutral”, “carbon offset” or “carbon compensation” indicates that Shell will engage in a transaction where an amount of CO₂ equivalent to the value of the remaining CO₂e emissions associated with the raw material extraction, transport, production, distribution and usage of the fuel are compensated through the purchase and retirement of carbon credits generated from CO₂ compensation projects. Although these carbon credits have been generated in accordance with international carbon standards, the compensation may not be exact. CO₂e (CO₂ equivalent) refers to CO₂, CH₄, N₂O.
