Royal Dutch Shell

Extractives companies have a significant impact on the locations where they operate. A failure to engage with appropriate stakeholders can result in severe human rights impacts, potentially risking a business’s social licence to operate. Providing access to clean energy and sustainable industrialisation are two key areas through which these companies can contribute to achieving the SDGs.
