Shell In The Community
Our vision is to continue playing a long-term, meaningful role in the community in line with our ambition to be a net-zero emissions energy company by 2050 or sooner, in step with society and with customers.
We have always focused on bringing lasting benefits to Singapore’s most valuable resource - her people. Our current social investment programmes focus on supporting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education, and developing start-ups in the smart, clean energy space.
Since the 1890s, our spirit of giving continues till even today. Many generations of Singaporeans have come to know our nation-wide programmes like the Shell Traffic Games.
INSPIRING FUTURE GENERATIONS WITH OUR STEM PROGRAMMES
NXplorers is an innovative educational STEM programme targeted at youth aged 14 to 19. It seeks to enthuse, empower and equip them with the tools and skills to embrace the complexity of real-world issues and become positive agents of change. Shell runs NXplorers locally in partnership with Science Centre Singapore.
Shell Eco-marathon (SEM) is one of the world’s leading student engineering competitions. It challenges tertiary-level students to design, build and drive some of the world’s most energy-efficient vehicles. All in the name of collaboration and innovation, as students’ bright ideas help to shape a lower carbon future for all.
BUILDING UP THE CAPACITY OF OUR LOCAL ENERGY START-UPS
MEET OUR COMMUNITY OF INNOVATORS, PROBLEM SOLVERS, LEADERS
To commemorate the International Day of Women and Girls, we chat with some of our inspiring women and student participants to find out more about their personal STEM journeys and their ambitions to build a more sustainable future for all.
We believe by supporting STEM and local energy start-ups, these can help create lasting value for society through skills development, job creation, sustained economic growth, and even social mobility.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE TO THE COMMUNITY
Volunteering is also an important way in which we engage our fenceline communities and give back in collaboration with our long-term community partners.
Shell SG Volunteers is Shell’s staff-led volunteering network through which our employees own and participate in outreach initiatives with our local communities, tying up with partners including Southwest Community Development Council (SWCDC), Lakeside Family Services (LFS), Institute of Technical Education (ITE) and AWWA. The aim of this network is to give our teams a space to come together and share time, skills and expertise by providing committed, needs-based support to the less privileged in our community.
