How does it work?

  • You opt-in to compensate the CO₂ emissions for your equipment or fleet with every purchase of Shell FuelSave Diesel

  • Shell analyses your equipment or fleet’s overall fuel consumption and calculates the associated CO₂ emissions

  • Shell offsets these emissions against our global portfolio of nature-based projects. Shell purchases carbon credits equivalent to the amount of your equipment or fleet’s emissions

  • Shell issues a yearly Shell retirement certificate confirming that the fuel has been compensated. Charges will be applied to your account.

Shell automatically calculates your well-to-wheel carbon emissions and offsets these through Shell’s global portfolio of nature-based solutions projects.

Carbon Offsetting FAQs


“Carbon neutral” or “CO2 compensated” indicates that Shell will engage in a transaction where an amount of CO2 equivalent to the value of the remaining CO2e emissions associated with the raw material extraction, transport, production, distribution and usage of the fuel are compensated through the purchase and retirement of carbon credits generated from CO2 compensation projects. Although these carbon credits have been generated in accordance with international carbon standards, the compensation may not be exact. CO2e (CO2 equivalent) refers to CO2, CH4, N2O.
