Energizing progress


We want to meet the energy needs of society in a viable way from economic, social and environmental points of view, now and in the future. Discover our company and our employees, and see how a small company founded in London nearly 200 years ago managed to become one of the world’s leading energy companies.

Shell in the world

Royal Dutch Shell was founded in 1907, although our history dates back to the early 19th century, to a small London company of the Samuel family selling seashells.

At present, Shell is one of the world’s leading energy companies, with approximately 93,000 employees, and operates in more than 70 countries. Our headquarters is in The Hague (Netherlands), and our Executive Director is Ben van Beurden. The parent company of the Shell group is Royal Dutch Shell plc, incorporated in England and Wales.

Our strategy is to strengthen our position as a leader in the oil and gas sector, while meeting the growing global energy demand in a responsible manner. Security, respect for the environment and social responsibility are at the core of all our activities.

Our goal

We believe that oil and gas will remain an essential component of the global mix of energy sources over many decades. We must ensure that we extract and supply these energy resources in a cost-effective way and respect the environment and society.

We want to work in cooperation with our clients, our partners and policy makers to achieve more efficient and sustainable use of energy and natural resources.

Our employees

Our employees work together on some of the most innovative and interesting energy projects in the world. A diversified workforce and an inclusive work environment are critical to our success, enabling us to better innovate and develop better solutions.

We offer our employees every opportunity to develop their potential to the fullest through professional training, development programs and ongoing support. Our leadership programs help talented people to become the future leaders of the energy sector.
