Royal Dutch Shell

Shell is an integrated energy company that aims to meet the world’s growing demand for energy in ways that are economically, environmentally and socially responsible. We are a global group of energy and petrochemical companies.

Our operations are divided into four businesses: Upstream, Integrated Gas and New Energies, Downstream, and Projects & Technology.

In Upstream we focus on developing major new projects where our technology and know-how add value for resource holders while simultaneously decreasing carbon intensity.

In Integrated Gas and New Energies, we focus on LNG and GTL as a cleaner replacement for traditional crude oil. The New Energies business has been established to explore new business models and scale up low-carbon opportunities.

In Downstream, we create refined products, which are moved and marketed around the world for domestic, industrial and transport use. In addition, we produce and sell petrochemicals for industrial use worldwide.

Our Projects & Technology business is responsible for delivering new development projects and the research and development that leads to innovative and low-cost investments for the future.

Jaaromzet:                                USD 388 billion (2018)
Aantal werknemers:            82,000 (2018)
Aantal vestigingslanden:  70+


Tijdens het Techniek Bedrijven Evenement zal Royal Dutch Shell een case verzorgen. De titel van de case is "Casestudie Shell"



As a global energy company operating in a challenging world, we set high standards of performance and ethical behaviours. We are judged by how we act and how we live up to our core values of honesty, integrity and respect for people. Our Business Principles are based on these. They promote trust, openness, teamwork and professionalism, as well as pride in what we do and how we conduct business.

We aim to work closely with our customers, our partners and policymakers to advance a more efficient and sustainable use of energy and natural resources.



Our strategy seeks to reinforce our position as a leader in the oil and gas industry, from which we generate cash flow to grow our new energy business, while helping to meet global energy demand in a responsible way. We strive to create competitive returns for shareholders.

Safety and environmental and social responsibility are at the heart of our activities.

Our commitment to technology and innovation continues to be at the core of our strategy. As energy projects become more complex and more technically demanding, we believe our engineering expertise will be a deciding factor in the growth of our businesses.

Our key strengths include the development and application of technology, the financial and project management skills that allow us to deliver global development projects, and the management of integrated value chains. This trinity has brought us where we are today, and is making us a global leader in the energy transition.

Let’s deliver better energy solutions together!



Our commitment to technology and innovation continues to be at the core of our strategy. As energy projects become more complex and more technically demanding, we believe our engineering expertise will be a deciding factor in the growth of our businesses in hydrocarbon energy and renewable energy.

Energy systems are changing. This is happening at different rates and with varying complexity around the world. The transition is driven by growing energy demand and an urgent need to curb CO2 emissions.

We are playing our part in the transition towards a low-carbon future. We aim to cut the net carbon footprint of our energy products – measured in grams of CO2 per megajoule of energy consumed by Shell AND its customers– by around half by 2050. 

Furthermore, we are making steps towards the United Nation’s sustainable development goals. As such, Ben van Beurden (Shell’s CEO) set the ambition that by 2030, Shell will be providing a reliable electricity supply to 100 million people that do not have it today
