Shell: ‘We understand worry for millions – but windfall tax creates uncertainty’

Shell: ‘We understand worry for millions – but windfall tax creates uncertainty’

 and : FRIDAY 27 MAY 2022

Shell has slammed the government’s windfall tax, saying while it “understands the worry for million” about the cost of living it will creates “uncertainty” about investment.

This follows Chancellor Rishi Sunak announcing a so-called Energy Profits Levy, a 25 per cent surcharge on North Sea oil and gas sector profits, which could last for up to three years.

The Treasury expects the tax will raise around £5bn over the next 12 months – which will help fund a £15bn package to save the country’s most vulnerable households £1,200 this year.

After BP said the tax may force it to reconsider its UK investment plans, Shell is the latest energy giant to come out against the levy.

A spokesperson told City A.M. : “We understand the worry for millions of people about how high energy costs are challenging their household budgets – and the need for support to help make ends meet.” read more

Investor rebellion over climate change at chaotic Shell AGM

A fifth of Shell shareholders have voted to reject its climate transition plans, almost double the rebellion that it endured a year ago.

The revolt came at a chaotic annual general meeting in London that was delayed for several hours after disruption by environmental protesters. Sir Andrew Mackenzie, Shell’s chairman, called police to clear the room at Central Hall in Westminster and three people were arrested outside the venue.

Shell, Europe’s biggest oil and gas group, is under intense scrutiny by investors and wider society over the speed of its plans to make the transition to cleaner energy. It has committed to eliminating its emissions to net zero by 2050, but faces pressure to make steep cuts in the near term, including from a read more

Shell directors may face lawsuit over climate transition plans

Simon Jessop and Kirstin Ridley and Shadia Nasralla: March 14, 2022

LONDON — Environmental lawyers ClientEarth said on Tuesday they were preparing legal action against the directors of Shell over the company’s climate transition plan, in what they said would be the first such case of its kind.

The ClientEarth lawyers said they are seeking to hold the directors personally liable for what they consider to be a failure to adequately prepare for the global shift to a low-carbon economy, claiming an alleged breach of the directors’ duties under the UK Companies Act.

ClientEarth said it had written to Shell notifying it of its claim and was waiting for it to respond before filing papers at the High Court of England and Wales. For the case to proceed, ClientEarth would then need permission from the court to do so. read more

A comprehensive study confirms that oil companies are largely all talk and no action when it comes to clean energy initiatives

Amy Westervelt: @amywestervelt: Fri 18 Feb 2022 11.00 GMT
