STATEMENT OF GENERAL BUSINESS PRINCIPLES
This document reaffirms the general business principles that govern how each of the Shell companies
The Group is a decentralised, diversified group of companies with widespread activities, and each Shell
Upholding the Shell reputation is paramount. We are judged by how we act. Our reputation will be
upheld if we act with honesty and integrity in all our dealings and we do what we think is right at all
times within the legitimate role of business.
Shell companies have as their core values honesty, integrity and respect for people. Shell companies also
professionalism, and in pride in what they do.
Our underlying corporate values determine our principles. These principles apply to all transactions, large
of its business.
In turn, the application of these principles is underpinned by procedures within each Shell company
accordance with them. We recognise that it is vital that our behaviour matches our intentions.
All the elements of this structure – values, principles and the accompanying procedures – are necessary.
Shell companies recognise that maintaining the trust and confidence of shareholders, employees,
customers and other people with whom they do business, as well as the communities in which they work,
is crucial to the Group’s continued growth and success. We intend to merit this trust by conducting
ourselves according to the standards set out in our principles.
These principles have served Shell companies well for many years. It is the responsibility of management
as the letter of this statement.
Chairman of the Committee
of Managing Directors
The objectives of Shell companies are to engage efficiently, responsibly and profitably in the oil, gas,
chemicals and other selected businesses and to participate in the search for and development of other
sources of energy. Shell companies seek a high standard of performance and aim to maintain a long term
position in their respective competitive environments.
Shell companies recognise five areas of responsibility:
To protect shareholders’ investment, and provide an acceptable return.
To win and maintain customers by developing and providing products and services which offer value in
terms of price, quality, safety and environmental impact, which are supported by the requisite
technological, environmental and commercial expertise.
To respect the human rights of their employees, to provide their employees with good and safe conditions
of work, and good and competitive terms and conditions of service, to promote the development and best
use of human talent and equal opportunity employment, and to encourage the involvement of employees
in the planning and direction of their work, and in the application of these principles within their
company. It is recognised that commercial success depends on the full commitment of all employees.
To seek mutually beneficial relationships with contractors, suppliers and in joint ventures and to promote
the application of these principles in so doing. The ability to promote these principles effectively will be
an important factor in the decision to enter into or remain in such relationships.
To conduct business as responsible corporate members of society, to observe the laws of the countries in
which they operate, to express support for fundamental human rights in line with the legitimate role of
business and to give proper regard to health, safety and the environment consistent with their commitment
to contribute to sustainable development. These five areas of responsibility are seen as inseparable.
Therefore it is the duty of management continuously to assess the priorities and discharge its
responsibilities as best it can on the basis of that assessment.
3. Economic Principles
Profitability is essential to discharging these responsibilities and staying in business. It is a measure both
of efficiency and of the value that customers place on Shell products and services. It is essential to the
allocation of the necessary corporate resources and to support the continuing investment required to
develop and produce future energy supplies to meet consumer needs. Without profits and a strong
financial foundation it would not be possible to fulfil the responsibilities outlined above. Shell companies
work in a wide variety of changing social, political and economic environments, but in general they
believe that the interests of the community can be served most efficiently by a market economy. Criteria
for investment decisions are not exclusively economic in nature but also take into account social and
environmental considerations and an appraisal of the security of the investment.
4. Business Integrity
Shell companies insist on honesty, integrity and fairness in all aspects of their business and expect the
same in their relationships with all those with whom they do business. The direct or indirect offer,
payment, soliciting and acceptance of bribes in any form are unacceptable practices. Employees must
avoid conflicts of interest between their private financial activities and their part in the conduct of
company business. All business transactions on behalf of a Shell company must be reflected accurately
and fairly in the accounts of the company in accordance
with established procedures and be subject to audit.
5. Political Activities
a. Of companies
Shell companies act in a socially responsible manner within the laws of the countries in which they
operate in pursuit of their legitimate commercial objectives. Shell companies do not make payments to
political parties, organisations or their representatives or take any part in party politics. However, when
dealing with governments, Shell companies have the right and the responsibility to make their position
known on any matter which affects themselves, their employees, their customers, or their shareholders.
They also have the right to make their position known on matters affecting the community, where they
have a contribution to make.
office, they will be given the opportunity to do so where this is appropriate in the light of local
6. Health, Safety and the Environment
Consistent with their commitment to contribute to sustainable development, Shell companies have a
systematic approach to health, safety and environmental management in order to achieve continuous
performance improvement. To this end, Shell companies manage these matters as any other critical
business activity, set targets for improvement, and measure, appraise and report performance.
7. The Community
The most important contribution that companies can make to the social and material progress of the
countries in which they operate is in performing their basic activities as effectively as possible. In
addition Shell companies take a constructive interest in societal matters which may not be directly related
to the business. Opportunities for involvement – for example through community, educational or
donations programmes – will vary depending upon the size of the company concerned, the nature of the
local society, and the scope for useful private initiatives.
Shell companies support free enterprise. They seek to compete fairly and ethically and within the
framework of applicable competition laws; they will not prevent others from competing freely with them.
Shell companies recognise that in view of the importance of the activities in which they are engaged and
their impact on national economies and individuals, open communication is essential. To this end, Shell
companies have comprehensive corporate information programmes and provide full relevant information
about their activities to legitimately interested parties, subject to any overriding considerations of business
confidentiality and cost.
