  11. 11. quot;Regardless of which route we choose, the world's current predicament limits our maneuvering room. We are experiencing a step-change in the growth rate of energy demand due to population growth and economic development, and Shell estimates that after 2015 supplies of easy-to-access oil and gas will no longer keep up with demand.quot; Jeroen van der Veer, CEO Shell 28th January 2008

  14. 14. How?
  15. 15. on climate change Climate change is a priority issue that has steadily risen up the international agenda and it is entirely appropriate that steps are being taken to address it. We accept that the business community has a role to play in stabilising and reducing greenhouse gas emissions and we believe that businesses should work in partnership with a range of sectors, including the Government, the devolved administrations, the public sector and the general public, to achieve the reductions set out in the Kyoto Protocol. There is no doubt that economic and environmental concerns do have the scope to be complementary. For example, steps to improve energy efficiency can both lead to reduced carbon emissions and reduced costs for industry. It is of concern that some attempts to control polluting behaviour are harming the competitiveness of UK firms. The UK needs to achieve its emissions targets with little or no impact on the commercial viability of business. The resulting cost burden will be counter-productive if it results in the transfer of products, and jobs, to countries where climate change measures are less stringent. This would not help the environmental objectives that the scheme is aiming to achieve. It is important to recognise that we are seeing an overall net increase in energy use in the UK, much of which comes from the domestic and transport sectors and not primarily from the industrial and commercial users. In fact many industrial users have already become much more energy efficient. Domestic consumers must share their part of the responsibility for improving energy efficiency.
