Shell has been proudly operating in Canada since 1911. Today, Shell strives to help produce more and cleaner energy for Canada and the world.

Starting November 2020, Shell will become the first retailer in Canada to offset carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from customers’ fuel purchases at Shell service stations across the country. The offsets cover all emissions from the production through to the use of the fuel.

“Canadian customers have told us they want more ways to reduce their CO2 emissions and make a difference, but they don’t always know what actions to take,” said Andrea Brecka, General Manager Retail, Shell Canada. “Our Drive Carbon Neutral program is designed to make it simpler for Shell customers to address their carbon footprint today.”

Customers can opt into the program at no extra cost when they pay for their Shell fuel purchases through Shell EasyPay™ in the Shell app during the promotional period. Shell will then offset customers’ emissions by purchasing independently verified carbon credits generated from Canadian and international projects that protect and regenerate forests.

Investing in nature-based solutions and offsetting customers’ carbon emissions are just some of the ways Shell is working to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050 or sooner. On the road, Shell is also making a wider range of lower-carbon transport solutions available to customers, including fuels like biofuels and hydrogen, and growing the number of charge points for electric cars through Shell-subsidiary Greenlots.

The launch of the Drive Carbon Neutral program in Canada follows similar programs Shell offers drivers around the world, including the UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and The Netherlands.
