Voluntary Carbon Market

Voluntary carbon credits are a recognized mechanism for investing in projects that contribute to reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.

Carbon Compliance Schemes

Shell Energy operates in all the main compliance markets in North America. We help companies to manage risk and efficiently comply with their regulatory obligations through offering structured solutions for:


  • California Carbon Allowance (CCA)

  • California Carbon Offset (CCO)

  • Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI)


  • Alberta Offset

  • Alberta Emissions Performance Credit (EPC)

Shell provides these offsets to companies who have committed to becoming carbon neutral or to reducing carbon emissions.

When CO2 emissions cannot be avoided.

… an investment can be made in a project elsewhere.

This project captures/reduces CO2 emissions that otherwise would not have occurred.

...that can be retired to demonstrate that an amount of carbon dioxide equivalent has been offset.

Helping you reach net zero with Voluntary Carbon Credits

Shell works with nature-based projects around the world that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions improving the livelihoods of local communities and preserving biodiversity and wildlife. These projects — verified by independent organizations with highest internationally recognized standards — generate carbon credits which can be used to compensate for your company’s emissions.

  • Shell actively manages its global portfolio ensuring cost efficiency and the ability to provide tailored solutions.

Shell's offerings include:

  • Bespoke voluntary carbon credits across all project types

  • Natural gas bundled with voluntary carbon credits

Conserving forests and creating carbon credits in Canada

In recent years, wildfires have significantly impacted the lands and communities of the Tŝilhqot’in Nation in the Canadian province of British Columbia. We are helping to address this issue by working with the Tŝilhqot’in National Government to reforest areas that have either been slow to regenerate on their own or have not done so at all. As well as restoring wildfire-devastated areas, the project has the potential to deliver other benefits, including indigenous and local employment – as well as improvements in the local ecosystems.

The project will:

  • Reforest 700 hectares of indigenous lands devastated by wildfire

  • Plant an estimated 840 trees, all native species
