Shell is one of the richest companies on earth. It does business in 140 countries dealing with 25 million customers every day. It claims to be dedicated to renewable energy and sustainable development.
But is Shell as green and clean as it claims? This film offers a profile of this famous multinational, explains its growth, and investigates the impact of its activities on countries throughout the world.
Living next door to Shell can be a hazardous business - as the residents of a community in Louisiana found out. Tests indicated they were being exposed to between 100 and 1000 times the normal levels of dangerous chemicals. Eventually Shell agreed to relocate the residents.
In 1995 Shell announced they were going to dispose of a giant oil tank called the Brent Spar in the Atlantic Ocean.
Environmental activists Greepeace occupied the Spar and the whole issue became a global sensation.
But there's one story which will always stick to Shell - Nigeria, where oil spills destroyed the homelands and livelihood of the Ogoni people living near Shell installations.
Writer Ken Saro Wiwa led international protests against Shell. In 1994 he was arrested on trumped-up charges by the Nigerian government and hanged. Shell washed its hands of involvement.
Since the early '90s Shell has made strong efforts to reinvent itself as a more caring company and made significant investment in renewable forms of energy. But how much is real and how much is pr "greenwash"?
