Climate Change and Shell's Response

In the coming 50 years, global energy demand will likely double as the population grows and increasing numbers improve their living standards. However, the reality of climate change is upon us and we will need to deliver all this energy with only half of today’s CO2 emissions. Twice the energy with half the CO2 is a challenge for us all. The talk will review the climate challenge, the energy challenge and Shell's early steps in this journey.
