125 years Shell in Singapore

Thanks to you, we have been here for 125 years.

More than five generations of Singapore residents have kept faith with us. Your trust has enabled us to grow from having an oil storage installation in the 1890s to being a company that now serves the world from Singapore.

Today we are a business that spans many fields, from shipping to aviation and petrochemicals to petrol fuel. We serve a large community.

Many thousands of loyal customers pump at our Shell stations every day. And we have partners who have collaborated on community programmes for many years: NParks; Singapore Environment Council; Northlight School, and the tertiary institutions, including the Institute of Technical Education. Take a look at Shell by the Numbers to get an idea of the size of our extended Shell family.

Our community initiatives have won us important awards. In 2012, we were conferred a Singapore Compact CSR Award, which recognised us for our long-term sustainable business practices in the environment, community and people. That was a proud moment for us.

Even prouder for us has been the Honorary Partner in Progress award. The Singapore government honoured us in 2014 for our key role in supporting Singapore’s economic and social development, and we remain the only such recipient from the private sector.

Our hope is to serve you and your families for many more decades, with meaningful jobs, great products, and innovations that deliver more energy with the least pollution. As we celebrate our 125th year in Singapore this year, our anniversary slogan is “Partnering Generations for Our Energy Future” – a reminder that we have an obligation to make the future with you. We look to your continued support.
