The world around us

Worldwide demand for energy is expected to further increase in the coming decades, whilst depletion of natural resources and the effects of climate change require immediate action for the short, medium and long term.

The world population continues to grow and a number of countries that were once seen as developing are now becoming wealthier. Worldwide demand for energy is expected to further increase in the coming decades, whilst depletion of natural resources and the effects of climate change require immediate action for the short, medium and long term. Accessible, clean, safe and affordable solutions are needed; therefore on-grid (solar, wind, hydro and thermal) and off-grid sources like LPG must be made available to assist consumers and businesses to move up the energy ladder towards cleaner energy. LPG is clean burning and produces relatively little CO2. Our energy products are supplied, packaged and delivered through a variety of closely managed processes. Safety is our absolute top priority. Our employees, customers, neighbours all trust us to create a safe living and working environment. As such, this is our highest responsibility within our purpose of Advancing Energy Together.

Global issues, local approach

The environmental issues in the world today should be addressed through local approaches. The need to reduce dependency on high carbon, high polluting energy is clear, but specific challenges vary across the globe. In order to meet binding climate targets, set out in the Paris Agreement 2015, there is no silver bullet. In the search for what is best for the environment and for consumers, depending on local weather conditions, natural resources and building stock, a mixed approach will optimise the actual deployment of available technologies, provide a more cost-effective solution and will lower carbon emissions.”

Indoor air quality

Exposure to outdoor air pollution, because of urbanisation and industrialisation, has been a huge problem for a long time and in many countries, it still is today. Indoor air quality forms a serious health risk for billions of people who still cook and heat their homes with biomass, kerosene fuels and coal. Encouraging them to make the switch to cleaner alternatives from our product portfolio, like LPG and LNG now and BioLPG in the future, can help solve that problem.

Integrity

Our employees are committed to doing business in a fair manner. They are driven by integrity, a value at the heart of everything we do. SHV Energy puts a lot of trust in its employees, who give their very best every day in bringing our company forward, while contributing to creating a better world. As our business requires it and our consumers deserve it, they will continue to pay rigorous attention to detail with a passion for continuous improvement in all our activities.
