Socially responsible investement

Shell employees choose for sustainability

Responsible investment is high on the Shell Pension agenda. But how do you and your (former) colleagues feel about sustainability? To find out, we launched a survey last summer in which 7,000 participants took part. We share the most important findings with you here.

Affordable and clean energy

Shell actively strives for 4 (out of 17) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Affordable and Clean Energy (Goal 7), Sustainable Cities and Communities (Goal 11), Climate Action (Goal 13) and Gender Equality (Goal 5). Of these goals, 'Affordable and Clean energy' is your favourite. This goal is seen as the most appealing and also the most suitable for Shell.

Not decisive in financial matters

Half of you let sustainability play a role in financial matters. To a larger extent, responsible investment is seen as achieving a good return and security for the future. To a lesser extent, investing in sustainable funds.

Need for information

You are not actively involved with the content of your pension scheme; you have a high degree of confidence in our Shell Pension Fund. You also feel it is important that Shell Pension invests responsibly. Two-thirds of the respondents would like to be kept up-to-date about the investment policy.

Your pension fund has taken the following sustainability actions

  • Signing of the Covenant on International Socially Responsible Investment Pension Funds (IMVB): a collaboration between 74 Dutch pension funds to influence companies to conduct business responsibly.
  • Establishing a dialogue with asset managers. This way, we determine to what extent their approach fits in with our socially responsible investment policy.
  • Following developments in the field of responsible investment carefully and making adjustments where necessary.
