* Special resolution

 

Please note that a ‘vote withheld’ is not a vote under English Law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes ‘for’ and ‘against’ a resolution.

 

Shell Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden said: “Shareholder support is critical as our business continues to change and we work towards our target to become a Net-Zero Emissions energy business by 2050. We are pleased that the overwhelming majority of shareholders continue to support Shell, our energy transition strategy and the progress we have made in the past 12 months. We are on the right track. We are also encouraged by the reduced support for Shareholder Resolution number 21 but recognise there is still work to do. We will consult shareholders to understand these votes and formally report back to investors within six months."
