Navigating through the energy transition: the role of the industrial sector

Attend this webcast to find out about:

Hear insights from Shell’s vision and contribution to the energy transition, across various sectors in the energy system, changing the mix of energy products sold to customers as their needs for energy change.

The challenge and the solution:

Manufacturing activities contribute to one-quarter of the global GDP, making materials and goods that are integral to our daily lives. At the same time, they account for 36% of the global GHG emissions. These numbers suggest that any decarbonization strategy will require active participation from energy-intensive industrial consumers. And the number of possible solutions to decarbonize the industry are numerous, have different applicability as well as different acceptability in each sector and they present diversified degrees of technological readiness and economic viability. This is where a company like Shell can make the greatest contribution to the energy transition, working sector by sector across the energy system, changing the mix of energy products sold to customers as their needs for energy change.
