The company’s Chief Executive Officer, Wael Sawan, initiated the review shortly after assuming office, aiming to assess the performance and strategic fit of their retail operations in Europe.

Following a comprehensive evaluation, Shell has concluded the strategic review and is now in the process of selling its home retail energy businesses.

The move signifies Shell’s commitment to optimizing its portfolio and allocating resources towards areas where it can thrive.

Factors such as changing consumer preferences, increasing competition from renewable energy sources, and regulatory pressures have contributed to the difficult operating environment for these businesses.

As governments and consumers prioritize decarbonization and renewable energy solutions, oil and gas companies have been compelled to adapt their strategies. Shell, known for its strong focus on the energy transition, is taking steps to position itself for long-term success in this changing landscape.
