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

Shell’s Brazil Wells Come Up Dry

Three exploration wells that Shell has drilled in Brazil in hopes of making the next big discovery have come up dry, Bloomberg has reported, citing an analyst with Wood Mackenzie.

This latest turn of events adds to bad news for Brazil and supermajors’ plans to turn it into the next hot spot in oil.

Shell and several partners paid $1 billion for drilling rights for three offshore blocks in Brazil and spent three years drilling exploratory wells. None of them turned up commercially viable volumes of oil, Marcelo de Assis, chief of Latin America upstream research at Wood Mackenzie, told Bloomberg. read more

Absolutely awful customer service

Absolutely awful customer service. Broadband has never worked, refuse to let you cancel or refund you. Long waiting times to speak to anyone yet cant ring you when you report an issue!

Yet again disgusted with this company

Yet again disgusted with this company. I have contacted them regarding my energy bills going up and up and each month they want more and more. I live alone don’t use my oven anymore only shower twice a week wash up in the sink use my washing machine once a fortnight, I pay £110 per month and now I amin debit. They do not answer my emails and if I am ever luckily enough to speak to a agent I can’t understand them as they are mainly Indian and having hearing problems it’s very very difficult. I am aware of the situation but my neighbour uses much more energy than me and has 2 at home and visitors nearly every weekend using all his entertainment facilities. He is with British Gas and only paying £80 a month. How do you think I feel when I see what profits they have made in a few months and yet I suffer daily worrying. I might as well be dead and I’m sure when the next rise I energy comes and winter I will be I just can’t continue they are a totally disgusting and terrible company I wish I could move to someone else who cares and helps pensioners suffering I also on a debt management plan since losing my husband suddenly. I didn’t want to give them any stars I would love to give minus but you don’t give us the facility to do this. A money grabbing load of lying hypocrites a blood sucking vile company. They are ruining any sort of I should at the age of 81. read more
