Shell has been active in Hong Kong for a century. Our business activities in Hong Kong include Retail, LPG, Commercial Fuel, Lubricants, Bitumen, Aviation, Marine and Chemicals. Throughout the century, Shell has been at the forefront of the drive to support Hong Kong to meet its growing energy needs. Today, Shell supplies Hong Kong and Macau customers with a wide range of oil, gas and chemical products from its technologically advanced Tsing Yi Installation. Sustainable development has been part of Shell's Business Principles, therefore, all our activities - be it operations, business and community activities - work together to build a better world for tomorrow.
Environment and Sustainability Highlights
For Shell, sustainability means providing essential energy for a growing population, while respecting people, their safety and the environment.
Sustainability at Shell touches on all areas of our operations. We aim to deliver the energy needed for a growing population in a responsible way - respecting people, their safety and the environment. Sustainability is essential to the longevity of our business and our role as a member of society. Our approach to sustainability is integrated across our business activities on three levels:
1. Running a safe, efficient, responsible and profitable business
This is the foundation of our approach, which includes having global standards, processes and tools in place to manage safety, environment and community involvement. We aim to continuously improve the way we operate to prevent incidents and identify, avoid where possible and minimise adverse environmental and social impacts across our projects and facilities. We report on our performance in our annual sustainability report.
2. Sharing wider benefits where we operate
Our business is planned for the long term, which means we can be part of a community for decades. We help to develop local economies by creating jobs, sourcing from local suppliers, and paying taxes and royalties. We support community projects that are based on the needs of the local communities.
3. Helping to shape a more sustainable energy future
In the coming decades, more and cleaner energy will be needed for economic development in the face of growing environmental pressures. We are investing in low-carbon energy solutions and advanced technologies, such as those that increase energy efficiency and reduce emissions. We continue to contribute to the public dialogue on energy and climate policy. Yet, the scale of the global challenges that the world faces are too great for one company, or one sector, to resolve. We advocate business, government and civil society working together to better shape a more sustainable energy future.
