Risks and opportunities

Trend

Shell receives a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely stay the same. Shell’s fuel and product mixes are not changing at the rate required to deliver emissions reductions aligned with its 1.5°C pathway. However, the recent announcement of its net-zero strategy and its increased activity in renewable electricity, biofuels and hydrogen production through acquisitions and partnerships, suggests that Shell will at least stay on track with its current trajectory, even though it is insufficient to align with a 1.5°C scenario.
