We understand the many challenges today’s fleets face on the road to a lower carbon future. Your fleet will produce emissions that are just unavoidable. And that’s where the Shell Carbon Compensation Programme can help.

It's easy. Sign up and your fleet’s emissions can be compensated simply by using the Shell Fleet Card. Shell takes care of the rest, mitigating your fleet's unavoidable carbon emissions through the purchase of carbon credits from a portfolio of carbon credits, drawn from a range of projects. This includes nature-based solutions like conservation, afforestation, reforestation and other methodologies. 

How does it work?

  • You opt-in to offset for carbon emissions from your fleet. Your drivers use the Shell Fleet Card to refuel at Shell service stations as usual. 'Tank-to-wheel' charges will be applied to your account

  • Shell tracks your fleet's overall fuel consumption and calculates the associated 'well-to-wheel' CO₂ emissions

  • Shell will purchase carbon credits equivalent to the amount of your fleet's carbon emissions to offset them through Shell’s global portfolio of nature-based solutions projects

  • Shell will issue an annual verified carbon reduction certificate confirming that the fuel has been offset

You don’t even have to change the way you work – Shell automatically calculates your well-to-wheel carbon emissions and offsets these through Shell’s global portfolio of nature-based solutions projects.

Carbon Offsetting FAQs


The terms “Carbon Neutral”, “Carbon Offset” or “Carbon offset compensation” are applied in a non-technical way to indicate that Shell has engaged in a transaction to ensure that an amount of carbon dioxide equivalent to that associated with the production, delivery and usage of the fuel has been removed from the atmosphere through a nature-based process or emissions saved through avoided deforestation”
