How Our Social Investment Program Works
Shell invests considerable effort in understanding the needs of the sectors that our social investment program focuses on, and building relationships with organisations in these areas. In doing so we identify organisations whose objectives and activities are consistent with our social investment program and invite proposals from these organisations. We do not encourage unsolicited applications.
Social Investment is the voluntarily use of company funds and resources, as part of social performance, in ways that are primarily intended to add social benefit beyond Shell, rather than for Shell’s direct commercial benefit.
Guidelines for evaluation
We evaluate proposals against the following criteria:
Consultation - Does the project arise from meaningful consultation with project beneficiaries? Will the proposal attract broad community support?
- Empowerment/strengthening local capacity - Does the project empower organisations and communities to sustain themselves?
- Leveraging and catalysing support - How far does Shell's support attract or open access to other resources?
- Partnership - Does the project bring public, private, non-governmental and community organisations together?
- Strategic Development - Is the project part of a strategic development plan and does it have longer-term and wider regional impact, beyond the direct outputs that result from Shell's support?
- Project delivery - Does the project partner have a proven track record? If not, what additional support is required to build their capacity and encourage sustainability?
- Alignment with business activities - Does the project align with Shell's businesses and activities? Does it promote the principles of sustainable development?
- Evaluation of benefit - How will you evaluate the outcomes and longer term impacts of the project for the beneficiaries?
- Obtaining recognition - Who will recognise this project as responding to issues of concern to them?
- Avoiding dependency - Does the proposal create dependency on Shell for funding? What is the proportion of the requested funding compared to the overall project costs?
- Shell people and other resources - What are the opportunities for the involvement of Shell people's skills and resources?
- Leadership - How will this project demonstrate that Shell is providing leadership in addressing social and environmental issues?
