Making carbon compensation work for your fleet

We understand the many challenges facing today’s fleets on the road to a lower carbon future, so Shell Fleet Solutions is developing a variety of ways to help – from fast, reliable electric vehicle (EV) charging to lower emissions fuels.

Yet however strong your focus on sustainability, your fleet is likely to produce some unavoidable emissions even after adopting new fuels and technology. Mitigating those emissions can play a key role in your low carbon planning. And the Shell Card makes the process simple and cost-effective.

Good for the environment

Good for the environment and for your business

As well as helping to address your fleet’s environmental impact, CO2 compensation also has a number of clear business benefits.

  • Demonstrate corporate leadership
  • Champion sustainable business practices
  • Pursue your carbon emissions commitment
  • Meet increasing demand for action from employees and external stakeholder

Your Shell card makes the process simple and cost-effective

You don’t even have to change the way you work – Shell automatically calculates your well-to-wheel emissions and compensates them using a global portfolio of nature-based projects


How it works

  • Step 1

    Step 1

    You opt-in to compensate the CO2 emissions from your fleet. Your drivers use the Shell Card to refuel as usual
  • Step 2

    Step 2

    Shell tracks your fleet’s overall fuel consumption and calculates the associated well-to-wheel CO2 emissions
  • Step 3

    Step 3

    Shell offsets these emissions against our global portfolio of nature-based projects
  • Step 4

    Step 4

    Shell will purchase carbon credits equivalent to the amount of your fleets’ emissions and issue a yearly certificate confirming that the fuel has been offset. ‘Tank-to-wheel’ charges will be applied to your account

If customers choose to drive carbon neutral they will pay a fee for the CO2 offsets for the emissions from the combustion of the engine (Tank-to-Wheel). Shell will pay for the CO2 offsets relating to the extraction, refining and distribution of this fuel (Well-to-Tank).
