Following the opening of its first Shell Recharge site in Hong Kong at Green Code, Fanling, becoming the first oil and gas company in Hong Kong to offer EV charging facilities; within a year, Shell has collaborated with different business partners, including real estate developers and automobile brand, to set up Shell Recharge sites successively at 6 car parks and at its Shell Airport (Cargo Terminal) Gas and Charging Station, actively aligning with the Government of HKSAR in implementing relevant policies on popularisation of EV, to help achieve net-zero emissions in Hong Kong through promoting "Green Transport".

Link is one of the largest car park owners in Hong Kong, by installing over 500 EV charging points in 34 of Link's car parks, we will be able to bring EV drivers a more convenient EV charging experience as well as to help Shell drive energy transition and help achieve net-zero emissions by 2050."
Nicholas Allen, Chairman of the Board of Link, said, “In response to Chief Executive’s Policy Address which advocates the promotion of green transport, and in concert with the Hong Kong Roadmap on Popularisation of Electric Vehicles, Link is proud to rollout our EV charging programme by offering 3,000 EV charging points across diversified locations in Hong Kong by 2024, making us the largest private provider of public EV charging points in the city. Link is delighted to collaborate with Shell Hong Kong Limited in achieving our goal, and we look forward to working hands-in-hands with Shell in powering Hong Kong into a greener and smarter city.”
