Putrajaya - Shell Promotes Road Safety with #Shellselamatsampai Carnival
Shell hosted its first #ShellSelamatSampai Road Safety Carnival as part of its road safety initiative, in Putrajaya today. The event was graced by the Secretary-General, Ministry of Transport, Yang Berbahagia Dato Jana Santhiran Muniayan, who was representing the Deputy Minister of Transport Yang Berhormat (YB)Datuk Haji Hasbi Habibollah.
Shell has a long history of advocating for road safety among Malaysians. Shell’s effort in promoting road safety spans over six decades and has benefited over 1 million school children nationwide.
With this carnival, Shell hopes to reach the community in an engaging and fun way.
“Shell has worked very closely with various stakeholders including many government agencies, over many decades, to promote road safety among Malaysians. This carnival is the result of a collective effort, and I would like to extend my gratitude to all our partners who have been steadfast in their support of Shell's road safety initiatives in Malaysia. Creating awareness on the importance of road safety is crucial and Shell will continue to strive, do our part to make the roads safer for everyone,” shared Siti Sulaiman, Country Chair of Shell Malaysia and Senior Vice President, Upstream Malaysia.
The carnival kickstarted with the #ShellSelamatSampai Fun Run, a 5km road safety friendly race. The Fun Run was flagged off by Shairan Huzani Husain, Managing Director of Shell Malaysia Trading and Shell Timur.
Activities at the carnival included a sharing session on the maintenance of motorcycles led by the Shell Advance team, learning about blind spots of heavy vehicles using two Shell road tankers that are newly equipped with 360-degree view and the latest Active Fatigue Detection Device, that vibrates the driver’s seat to alert the drivers when they get tired. Visitors could also try the seat-belt convincer machine and a driving simulator.
The carnival also had entertainment and games for the whole family. There were also other booths by Shell’s road safety partners, and JPJ had a driver’s licence renewal mobile truck. The Putrajaya Food Truck Association and Shell Café provided food and beverages.
Additionally, the #ShellSelamatSampai e-Learning Module has been included in the Education Ministry’s DELIMa portal. This provides a fun learning experience on road safety education to 2.5 million secondary school students nationwide.
The #ShellSelamatSampai Varsity Challenge empowers university students to develop road safety intervention solutions in an innovative manner to promote road safety.
Shell Malaysia is grateful for the support of its esteemed partners namely the Ministry of Transport, Road Transport Department (JPJ), Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS), Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM), Ministry of Education, PanduLaju and many others who have contributed their time and expertise to the success of #ShellSelamatSampai.

These risk factors also expressly qualify all forward-looking statements contained in this announcement and should be considered by the reader. Each forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date of this announcement, March 11, 2023. Neither Shell plc nor any of its subsidiaries undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or other information.

Shell’s net carbon footprint
Also, in this announcement we may refer to Shell’s “Net Carbon Footprint” or “Net Carbon Intensity”, which include Shell’s carbon emissions from the production of our energy products, our suppliers’ carbon emissions in supplying energy for that production and our customers’ carbon emissions associated with their use of the energy products we sell. Shell only controls its own emissions. The use of the term Shell’s “Net Carbon Footprint” or “Net Carbon Intensity” are for convenience only and not intended to suggest these emissions are those of Shell plc or its subsidiaries.
Shell’s net-Zero Emissions Target
Shell’s operating plan, outlook and budgets are forecasted for a ten-year period and are updated every year. They reflect the current economic environment and what we can reasonably expect to see over the next ten years. Accordingly, they reflect our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Net Carbon Footprint (NCF) targets over the next ten years. However, Shell’s operating plans cannot reflect our 2050 net-zero emissions target and 2035 NCF target, as these targets are currently outside our planning period. In the future, as society moves towards net-zero emissions, we expect Shell’s operating plans to reflect this movement. However, if society is not net zero in 2050, as of today, there would be significant risk that Shell may not meet this target.
Forward Looking Non-GAAP measures
This announcement may contain certain forward-looking non-GAAP measures such as cash capital expenditure and divestments. We are unable to provide a reconciliation of these forward-looking Non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures because certain information needed to reconcile those Non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is dependent on future events some of which are outside the control of Shell, such as oil and gas prices, interest rates and exchange rates. Moreover, estimating such GAAP measures with the required precision necessary to provide a meaningful reconciliation is extremely difficult and could not be accomplished without unreasonable effort. Non-GAAP measures in respect of future periods which cannot be reconciled to the most comparable GAAP financial measure are calculated in a manner which is consistent with the accounting policies applied in Shell plc’s consolidated financial statements.
