Green transition friction prompts wave of resignations at Shell

  • Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) has been hit by the departure of several clean energy executives amid a split over how aggressively the oil giant should shift towards greener fuels, FT reports.
  • Those include Marc van Gerven, who headed the solar, storage and onshore wind businesses, Eric Bradley, who worked in Shell’s distributed energy division, and Katherine Dixon, a leader in its energy transition strategy team. Other top executives are due to leave the company, though not every move is known to be linked to the pace of change.
  • The wave of resignations come shortly before Shell is set to announce a strategy update in February, spelling out how it plans to become a net zero emissions business.
  • In August, rival BP (NYSE:BP) said it would shrink oil and gas output by 40% over the next decade, a move analysts predict will force Shell down a similar path.
  • Premarket: RDS.A +3.1%; RDS.B +2.9%.
