Shell Indonesia Drives Environmentally Friendly Energy Solutions Through Low Emission Products Portfolio Expansion
Apr 29, 2021
Jakarta - Shell Indonesia solidifies its commitment in powering the world’s transition into cleaner energy use through low- emission product portfolio. Align with the Powering Progress strategy set globally by Shell to accelerate the business transition into a net-zero emission energy company in 2050, Shell Indonesia supports the Indonesian Government’s agenda in reducing the global warming rate in order to achieve Paris Agreement’s commitment.
“Shell’s global strategy is to thrive to be at the forefront in supporting the world’s society in using cleaner and more sustainable energy. We do this through our developments of low carbon products and various energy efficiency solutions. These have become a part of Shell’s new global strategy, namely Powering Progress,” said Shell Indonesia President Director and Country Chair Dian Andyasuri.
Shell does not only apply the low emission principle in the development of products and services, but also throughout the company’s operation by reducing carbon intensity on each material, technology, design, equipment, operational mechanism, and by educating its employees. Shell believes that all decisions taken by the company, suppliers, partners, and employees will be significant in achieving the ambition to be a net-zero emission energy company in the future.
Creating Environmentally Friendly Energy Through Low Carbon Product Portfolio
In accelerating the net-zero emission business transformation, Shell provides customers with access to cleaner and more efficient energy products, and consistently develops downstream business’ products portfolio by taking environmental aspects into considerations, aligned with the Powering Progress global strategy.
Since last March, Shell Indonesia has introduced the latest premium fuel product Shell V-Power Nitro+ which complies with the EURO 4 standard. With DYNAFLEX technology, Shell V-Power Nitro+ is equipped with an unbeatable cleaning power to protect vehicles from sediments that may reduce engine performance.
Apart from Shell V-Power Nitro+ that is available at several Shell fuel stations, we have also launched other new Shell V-Power products with high-quality fuel for diesel engines, namely Shell V-Power Diesel which has met the EURO 5 standard with 10ppm ultra-low sulphur content.
Dian elaborated that the EURO standard is used to limit pollutants content in motor vehicle emission. Currently, Shell’s products have complied with the EURO 4 and EURO 5 standards. The presence of EURO 4 and EURO 5 standardized fuels will provide positive impacts to customers in Indonesia as well as the automotive industry with a more efficient engine combustion process, more ability to save fuels, and more prevention to engine corrosions which will lead to lower carbon emission rate.
Not only supporting the national target achievement to reduce 41% greenhouse gas (GHG) by 2030, Shell standardized products also contribute to the public health sector by reducing carbon pollution in the air resulted from fuel use.
For electric-powered vehicles, Shell also provides recharging facility Shell Recharge which can be visited at the Shell Pluit Selatan 1 fuel station. Shell Recharge’s presence is also a manifestation of Shell’s support towards the Indonesian Government’s agenda in transitioning to cleaner energy.
In the lubricant business, Shell has launched several carbon-neutral lubricant products that are made possible through the carbon offset mechanism from Shell’s Nature-based Solutions (NBS) project in 2021. All carbon emissions resulted from product use by customers will be offset by the carbon credit in the NBS project.
“We understand that more business players are looking into solutions to carry out their business in a more environmentally friendly way, and therefore, in 2021 Shell launched carbon-neutral lubricant products such as Shell Gadus S5, Shell Omala S4 WE, Shell Omala S4 GXV, Shell Mysella S5, and Shell Rimula R6 LM. These carbon-neutral products will be available in Indonesia and allow customers to do their daily business operations more efficiently with a low emission,” added Dian.
Dian also highlights the importance of collaboration among all stakeholders in Indonesia. “Collaboration with stakeholders in Indonesia is the key. The government and all energy business entities in the country are important components in realizing the agenda to provide cleaner energy. We are ready to collaborate in realizing this noble shared goal,” added Dian.
Globally, Shell is targeting to offset more than 200 million litre of lubricants each year, which compensates approximately 700,000 ton of carbon dioxide (CO2e) equivalent emission per year or equal to taking 340,000 cars from the road for a whole year.
Shell now has more than 300 experts globally who are fully dedicated in developing fuel and lubricant products for vehicles, ships, and aircrafts. For the next seven years, Shell aims to expand its portfolio by producing more environmentally friendly energy options for a wide range of vehicles for customers around the world.
