Shell’s Heroic Retreat from Renewable Energy: Head of Renewable Generation Bids Farewell to Greedy, Polluting Empire

By John Donovan: 3 July 2023

Thomas Brostrom has made the courageous decision to leave the oil giant Shell Plc. This decision comes weeks after the newly appointed chief executive, Wael Sawan, shamelessly curtailed Shell’s feeble attempts at a green transition.

Brostrom, a courageous advocate for renewable energy, joined Shell in August 2021, after the company’s previous CEO, Ben van Beurden, made token gestures towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions. His appointment as head of renewables in February 2022 promised a glimmer of hope for a company that thrives on exploiting the Earth’s finite resources.

However, Sawan, who ascended to the throne in January, boldly declared on June 14 a remarkable reversal, prioritizing oil and gas production while conveniently slashing investments in renewables. This strategic move was motivated by the unbearable pressure from investors, demanding Shell focus on activities that maximized their profits.

In response to Brostrom’s departure, the company offered a poignant statement: “Brostrøm has elected to leave Shell to pursue an external opportunity.” How noble of Shell to acknowledge that there exist opportunities elsewhere that are more aligned with Brostrom’s principles of sustainability and genuine concern for the planet.
