Shell’s Energy Transition Progress Report 2021 outlines our progress in the year since our shareholders overwhelmingly supported our energy transition strategy.

It shows how we are working towards concrete climate goals, including our new target to reduce absolute emissions from our operations and the energy we use to run them by 50% by 2030, compared with 2016 on a net basis. By the end of 2021, we had made a reduction of 18%.

This reports also details critical investment decisions we have taken in the production of low-carbon fuels, solar and wind power, and hydrogen. It shows how we have made significant changes to our Upstream and refinery portfolios, reshaped the organisation and simplified the company and its share structure.

Our energy transition strategy was put to an advisory shareholder vote at the Annual General Meeting in 2021, when it secured around 89% of the vote. In 2022, we are asking shareholders to vote on our progress, as we will do every year until 2050. The vote on progress is purely advisory and not binding on shareholders.
