I am pleased to introduce you to the book “People & Progress”. It is intend-ed to give you an impression of Shell’s diversity as a global group of energy and petrochemical companies. The book traces how that diversity supports our commitment to sustainable development, It consciously presents energy as a key natural resource at two different levels. There is the energy we extract to power the economy today and tomorrow. And there is the immense human energy brought to bear daily by the 100,000-plus people who work at Shell. Both forms of energy are central to the success of our business strategy.

Peter Voser, Chief Executive Officer
