Get in touch

As he steps into his new role as Chief Executive Officer, James VanMeter discusses the energy transition, and why a strong focus on performance will be vital for Shell.

Shell's purpose is to power progress together with more and cleaner energy solutions. We believe that rising standards of living for a growing global population are likely to continue to drive demand for energy, including oil and gas, for years to come. At the same time, the need to tackle climate change means there is a global transition under way to a low-carbon energy system.
