What If Shell Followed Volkswagen’s Example In The Fight Against Climate Change?

What If Shell Followed Volkswagen’s Example In The Fight Against Climate Change?

Jeroen Kraaijenbrink:

Volkswagen is not Shell and cars are not oil. But the similarities are striking. They are both giant corporations (#1 and #3 in Europe respectively), they are both high-tech firms, they are both capital intensive, they both still depend on oil, and both like to see themselves as leaders in their industries. In light of these similarities: what if Shell followed Volkswagen’s example in the fight for climate change? If Shell wants to do so, the time is now. Because the window of opportunity is short. If Shell doesn’t embrace renewable energy at full speed now, it may soon lose its chance to become one of the major energy players of the future. Sure, also in 2030, or 2050, they might still be a major player in the energy industry. But if they want to accept a role as the industry leader, now is the right moment. What if. read more

Shell’s Niger Delta oil-spill case to be heard in UK courts

22 July 2021 8:13 GMT UPDATED  22 July 2021 8:13 GMT

Anglo-Dutch supermajor Shell has run out of time to appeal a UK court ruling earlier this year which found that a five-year-old case on environmental pollution in the Niger Delta should be heard in the UK and not Nigeria. In February, Shell’s lawyers failed to convince the High Court in London over the jurisdictional argument that the trial would be better decided in Nigeria, although Shell was given leave to appeal but declined to do so. read more

Shell To Appeal Landmark Court Ruling

By City A.M – Jul 21, 2021, 11:30 AM CDT

Shell has today confirmed that it will appeal against a landmark court ruling requiring the oil giant to cut emissions faster than it had planned to.

The Anglo-Dutch firm said that it had been unfairly singled out by the ruling, which it said was not an “effective” way of tackling climate change.

In May, a court in the Hague ordered the firm to slash greenhouse emissions by 45 percent from 2019 levels by 2030. read more

Shell to Appeal Dutch Court Ruling on Emissions Cuts

Shell to Appeal Dutch Court Ruling on Emissions Cuts

By Sarah McFarlane: July 20, 2021 8:24 am ET

Royal Dutch Shell PLC on Tuesday confirmed it would appeal against a Dutch court ruling calling for the oil major to reduce its carbon emissions at a faster pace, saying it was being unfairly singled out.

The energy giant said it was working toward increasing the scale and speed of its plans for cutting carbon emissions, but that the court ruling didn’t take into account the commitments it set out earlier this year to shift away from fossil fuels toward lower-carbon energy due to the timing of the hearings. read more

Shell To Appeal Court Ruling In Netherlands Climate Case

RTTNews: Jul. 20, 2021, 07:48 AM

(RTTNews) – Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDS-B, RDSB.L, RDSA.L, RDS-A) confirmed that it will appeal a ruling issued by the District Court in The Hague, in May 2021, that Shell must reduce its global net carbon emissions by 45% by 2030 compared to 2019 levels.

Shell said it agrees urgent action is needed and it will accelerate its transition to net zero emissions by 2050. But it will appeal because a court judgment, against a single company, is not effective. Climate change is a challenge that requires both urgent action and an approach that is global, collaborative and encourages coordination between all parties. read more

How a powerful US lobby group helps big oil to block climate action

How a powerful US lobby group helps big oil to block climate action

Chris McGreal: Mon 19 Jul 2021 11.00 BST

When Royal Dutch Shell published its annual environmental report in April, it boasted that it was investing heavily in renewable energy. The oil giant committed to installing hundreds of thousands of charging stations for electric vehicles around the world to help offset the harm caused by burning fossil fuels.

On the same day, Shell issued a separate report revealing that its single largest donation to political lobby groups last year was made to the American Petroleum Institute, one of the US’s most powerful trade organizations, which drives the oil industry’s relationship with Congress. read more
