Hi there,

I have done some research and found some sources for you that I think will help you with your paper.

A March 1999 report, the Council for Economic Priorities ranked Shell as the 10th most environmentally sound oil company, out of a field of 15 companies surveyed. The ranking was based on environmental impact (60% weight), environmental management systems (30% weight), and corporate environmental reporting (10% weight). Please note that the Council for Economic Priorities does not employ environmental scientists or engineers, and they only use statistical analysis in their ranking system, comparing data from the companies themselves on leaks, spills, emissions, etc. A more in-depth analysis is not reflected in CEP's ranking system.

In December 1997 Shell announced its intention to invest $500 million in renewable energy technologies. The Sustainable Energy Program, a Shell grant-giving initiative to promote sustainable energy, has approved funding for 19 projects in more than 15 countries spread across four continents. The initiative - part of the Shell's social investment program - gives aid to projects that "reduce the environmental impact of continued fossil fuel use and increase the access of poor communities in developing countries to modern forms of energy" (Shell webiste).
