Shell Climate Case to Return to Focus at Annual Shareholder Meeting

Shell Climate Case to Return to Focus at Annual Shareholder Meeting

Laura HurstBloomberg News

(Bloomberg) — Climate issues are set to take center stage at Shell Plc’s annual general meeting on Tuesday, with a key group saying the energy giant isn’t abiding by a landmark court order requiring it to cut emissions by 45% by 2030.  

Milieudefensie, the Dutch arm of Friends of the Earth, says Shell’s plans around customer-related emissions — which make up the bulk of its pollution — aren’t in line with last year’s judgment. The group originally brought the case against the company.

“The judge’s verdict is clear and necessary: Shell must stop causing dangerous climate change,” said campaign spokesperson Nine de Pater, who plans to attend the meeting in London as a proxy shareholder.  read more

The worst broadband company I have ever had to deal with

21 MAY 2022

The content below is sourced from current verifiable customer reviews of Shell Energy published on Trustpilot.

NEVER USE THIS COMPANY

NEVER USE THIS COMPANY. The worst broadband company I have ever had to deal with. No one seems to know what they are talking about. Took ages to set up as staff kept getting details wrong, such bad connection I would give up watching a programme and go to bed, cheap tacky router which they actually wanted returning when I moved, router was is storage as I intended on continuing with shell when I found a house (living with my daughter at the moment). Now they want to charge me for the router and charge me for the rest of the year – nearly £200 – as I ‘have a contract with them’. All other companies connected with me selling my house have been great, occasional charge for ending a contract early but all expected. This company just want your money, not interested in the customer. the fact that they want money for providing no service is disgusting. One very helpful member of staff said she would refer me to the complaints department, then quite happily told me I would still owe them to the end of the year! Another unhelpful member of staff said she ‘understood’ why I was annoyed at the cost, but she clearly didn’t ‘understand’ at all – no one “understands” that it is fair to charge a customer for the year with no provision of a service. My ‘complaints’ phone call was a message to call them back! Great customer service! They obviously have so many complaints they only have time for one call. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE read more

Clifford Chance to handle Shell’s appeal against sensational defeat in the Milieudefensie case

The following are translated extracts from an article published on 19 May 2022 by the Dutch financial newspaper, the fd.

By Martijn Pols and Joris Polman.

Oil company Shell has set aside house lawyer De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek after the sensational defeat against Milieudefensie. Exactly one year ago, the judge forced Shell to tighten up its climate policy.

Shell appealed but had no confidence in a good outcome with De Brauw by its side. Lawyers for British Clifford Chance can now make another attempt. read more

Shell Energy Broadband an ‘Absolute terrible company’

Absolute terrible company. Don’t get Broadband with this company, they recently took over Post Office Broadband….. and ruined it. They are a complete rip-off.

Shell Energy Broadband Reviews recently posted on broadband.co.uk

Absolutely useless. My 80 year old mother has been constantly chased by them for payments she has already made and threatened with being cut off – happens every month. When you try and phone customer services they don’t know what they’re doing – you have to wait over 45 minutes to get through and they usually cut you off anyway. It’s nothing short of harassment – I’ve never known such a useless company read more

Shell Broadband Price Gouging

Shell Broadband Price Gouging

The content below is sourced from current verifiable customer reviews of Shell Energy published on Trustpilot.

Broadband Price Gouging

Just let me me know they’re ‘generously’ postponing a planned price increase for my broadband. Which means they plan to increase the price from the price I agreed to pay when I signed a contract with them. Apparently this is legal but I fail to see how this differs from fraud, especially as I am not allowed to cancel the contract when they increase their prices. Absolutely disgusted by Shell and will definitely be moving on at the end of my contract. Disgusting, unethical behaviour. Talk Talk didn’t even pull this sort of nonsense. read more

Dan Loeb adds to Shell stake despite doubling down on break-up calls

: SUNDAY 08 MAY 2022 12:29 PM

Activist investor Daniel Loeb has revealed he has added to his stake in energy giant Shell despite doubling down on calls for a shake-up to the energy major’s corporate structure.

Loeb, who revealed in October that his hedge fund Third Point had taken $750m stake in Shell, told his investors last week that he had upped his stake in the firm and had held discussions with the firm’s bosses. read more

Does Shell Energy Customer Service Actually Exist?

6 MAY 2022

The content below is sourced from current verifiable customer reviews of Shell Energy published on Trustpilot.

Worst customer service ever

Worst customer service ever! 3 x calls, all over an hour and still no answer from customer services! Disgusting!! no other way for my 82 year old client to contact them – the worst customer service I have ever experienced and I have experience of dealing with DWP and HMRC – these guys are muppets! Do not use!!

Awful Company to contact

I have waited for 50 minutes, twice, waiting for Customer Service (does it actually exist?) before having to hang up. I need to sort out my late Mother’s account after receiving a statement showing a CREDIT, but with a demand to pay. It seems her phone service with the Post Office was taken over by Shell Energy. Life is distressing enough at the moment without navigating a large Company like Shell not having a half decent way to help me sort out my query. Appalling! read more

Shell obtains injunctions against U.K. climate protests

Shell obtains injunctions against U.K. climate protests

Shell has obtained injunctions from U.K. courts that pave the way for protesters to be fined or put in prison if they block or damage petrol stations and other oil facilities in England and Wales, the firm said on Friday.

The move follows several protests in recent weeks by climate activists such as Extinction Rebellion and Just Stop Oil.

It mirrors steps taken by other oil firms including Exxon that were backed by Britain’s business department, which says the right to protest should not cause disruption to people’s everyday lives. read more

Shell profits jump 43% to £7.2 billion amid calls for windfall tax

Shell profits jump 43% to £7.2 billion amid calls for windfall tax

By Oscar Williams-Grut City Editor @OscarWGrut: 5 May 2022

Oil giant Shell has announced a huge jump in profits amid growing calls for a windfall tax on oil and gas giants.

Royal Dutch Shell reported underlying profits of $9.1 billion (£7.2 billion) in the first quarter, up 43% on the final three months of 2021 thanks to soaring oil and gas prices.

The huge profits are likely to reignite calls for a windfall tax on energy giants. A one-off tax on BP and Shell alone could raise £9 billion for the Treasury, the Liberal Democrats estimate. read more
