Shell Announces Carbon Neutral Solutions

Our partner, Shell, has announced its target to become a net-zero carbon emissions energy business by 2050 or sooner, in step with society. 

Shell provides approximately five billion liters of finished lubricants annually to customers across the world. From aviation to power generation, marine to mining, both consumer and commercial automotive, these lubricants help to keep the world moving by ensuring machinery can operate consistently and efficiently at the peak of its performance.

But behind this performance, there is an ongoing need to balance increased operational output with reduced environmental impact. And as demands evolve, expectations change too. Customers and consumers alike now expect brands to offer sustainable solutions that make it easier for them to make sustainable choices. 

Customers are increasingly in need of sustainable solutions. So, to meet this growing industry demand, Shell is exploring a range of initiatives that seek to avoid, reduce and offset emissions while helping consumers and customers to find solutions that benefit both their operational and sustainability goals.

The latest step in this journey is the launch of an extended range of carbon neutral lubricants. As well as helping to avoid or reduce emissions through material choices and operational efficiencies, these products are now carbon neutral thanks to Shell’s global portfolio of nature-based carbon credits.

They span a number of sectors, including:

  • Premium passenger car motor oil
  • Heavy duty diesel engine oil
  • Industrial portfolios

The initiative is the largest and most significant carbon neutral program in the lubricants industry today, aiming to offset the CO2e3 emissions of more than 200 million liters of high-quality lubricants.
