About Shell Mining
With 80,000+ employees across 70+ countries, Shell works with global industries to accelerate the transition to net-zero emissions by providing more and cleaner energy solutions. Shell’s target is to become a net-zero business by 2050, which supports the ambitious goal to tackle climate change laid out in the UN Paris Agreement: to limit the rise in average global temperature to 1.5° Celsius.
To help transform industries, Shell has created the Shell Sectors & Decarbonisation (S&D) business. This is comprised of teams with specific sectoral experience who support companies that operate in hard-to-abate sectors to avoid, reduce and mitigate their emissions. Shell S&D provides these customers with the products and solutions required today, while working together to meet their fast-evolving needs.
Shell Mining works across the entire mining value chain – from hauling to processing and beyond – to identify and develop decarbonisation strategies, pathways and solutions that help unlock efficient operations and sustainable practices. Shell’s sectoral approach allows the mining team to apply its deep industry knowledge and expertise, while working closely with customers to develop highly tailored solutions. In doing so, Shell Mining sees collaboration as a critical part of innovation and a crucial lever for emissions reduction across the sector.
