Shell supports the goals of the Paris Agreement
“This is an industry first. With this review, Shell have set the benchmark for best practice on corporate climate lobbying not just within oil and gas but across all industries. The challenge now is for others to follow suit.” Adam Matthews, director of ethics and engagement for the Church of England Pensions Board

Our view: “Go well, go Shell!” The biobased chemicals (and fuels) industry needs corporate leadership of ‘big oil’ and not lobbying for goals that are not aligned with the Paris Agreement.
