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

Behind Shell’s strategy to get into green energy.

THE NEW YORK TIMES

Behind Shell’s strategy to get into green energy.

June 21, 2021, 8:07 a.m. ET

Ben van Beurden, the chief executive of Royal Dutch Shell, has been talking about the need to cut emissions since 2017. In the view of some, though, Shell has dragged its feet.

The company’s clean energy investments since 2016 add up to $3.2 billion, Stanley Reed reports for The New York Times, while it has spent about $84 billion on oil and gas exploration and development, according to estimates by Bernstein, a research firm.

“You cannot claim to be in transition when you only invest” such a small percentage of capital in new businesses, said Mark van Baal, founder of Follow This, a Dutch investor activist group. read more

Will Shell perish under the demands of the judge?

Will Shell perish under the demands of the judge?

A court that imposes a CO 2 reduction on an oil company by waving human rights and climate change. This has never been seen in the world before. What are the consequences?

Ton Voermans & Peet Vogels  Last update: 27-05-21, 19:36

Can Shell meet the requirements?
That will be quite a job. The judge ordered that Shell reduce its own CO 2 emissions by 45 percent by 2030. This is an obligation and goes further than Shell’s own objective. But experts expect Shell to be able to achieve this. Society has already started using solar power in oil production. And Marjan van Loon, the CEO of Shell Netherlands, is already driving around in a hydrogen car. Others point out that Shell can still reduce methane leaks, methane is a strong greenhouse gas. And Shell can capture and store its own CO 2 emissions in empty gas fields. read more

Climate Ruling Could Force Big Change at Shell

Climate Ruling Could Force Big Change at Shell

Oil giant might need to sell assets and rethink spending to meet Dutch court order to curb carbon emission

By Sarah McFarlane: May 27, 2021 12:08 pm ET

To comply with a Dutch court order to cut carbon emissions, Royal Dutch Shell PLC may have to overhaul its business and cut its oil output faster than it had planned, analysts and investors said.

Potential ways to curb emissions include selling assets, rethinking exploration spending and halting growth of its liquefied-natural gas operations, they said. read more

The pace of emission reduction has to increase significantly at Shell, but how?

The pace of emission reduction has to increase significantly at Shell, but how?

Bert van Dijk May 26, 8:58 PM

In brief

  • Shell must reduce the emissions of the judge much faster than it has now planned.
  • The company has plenty of options to do that, according to experts.
  • The major challenge lies in the obligation to make every effort to reduce emissions for customers.

… it has become clear that investing even more in exploration, looking for new oil and gas, is pointless. 

Charging points, hydrogen and biofuels

Shell itself wants to stick to the line it has set for the time being. “We are investing billions of dollars in low-carbon energy, including charging points for charging electric vehicles, hydrogen, renewables and biofuels. We want to increase the demand for these products and scale up our new energy companies even faster. ‘ read more

Oil Majors Look to Fill Businesses’ Growing Appetite for Green Power

Oil Majors Look to Fill Businesses’ Growing Appetite for Green Power

By Sarah McFarlane: May 24, 2021 7:00 am ET

Businesses are buying more renewable power, and oil majors want a piece of the action.

European oil companies including BP PLC and Royal Dutch Shell PLC are building new wind and solar projects and striking deals to supply electricity to big corporate buyers like Amazon.com Inc. and Microsoft Corp., treading into the domain of traditional power companies.

Oil companies say securing long-term deals to supply electricity will provide a new source of income and underpin their expansion into wind and solar power as they seek to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels and prepare for a lower-carbon economy. read more

Royal Dutch Shell AGM (Tuesday 18th May)

Royal Dutch Shell AGM (Tuesday 18th May)

by Graeme Evans from interactive investor

17th May 2021 09:01

Shell’s energy transition strategy will go before an advisory vote of shareholders as the oil giant takes its first steps towards becoming a net-zero emissions business by 2050.

Chief executive Ben van Beurden set out the strategy in February, outlining a focus on low-carbon operations such as wind, solar, biofuels and hydrogen over the next decade.

For the foreseeable future, Shell sees upstream operations continuing to deliver the energy supplies and cash needed to accelerate the transition towards low carbon businesses. read more
