Shell Helps Drivers Offset Carbon Emissions

Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Royal Dutch Shell will spend $300 million over the next three years to help motorists offset the emissions from their cars, by funding large forest projects in the Netherlands, Spain, Australia, and other countries.

The first project will launch next week in the Netherlands. According to the company, motorists in the Netherlands will be able to purchase carbon offsets for 1 euro cent per liter when they fill up at Shell stations, which will make their driving “carbon neutral.”

A similar program will be introduced in the UK later this year.
