Earthquakes, hurricanes and floods can devastate communities. At Shell we work to keep our people and facilities safe when natural disasters strike. We also often provide relief for affected communities and support their efforts to rebuild for the long term. Together with governments, we aim to maintain a secure energy supply for local people.
Natural disasters destroy homes, roads and communication networks. The economic impact can be vast. At worst, they injure and even kill many of those in affected regions. Swift action is vital to help protect communities and we provide aid where it is most needed, such as in the examples below.
