SHELL NEW ZEALAND

MEDIA STATEMENT
21 November 2001

Shell head named Honorary fellow of sustainable development centre

Shell New Zealand’s Chairman and Chief Financial Officer Ed Johnson was today named the first Honorary Fellow of the Centre of Business and Sustainable Development, which is a part of the College of Business, Massey University.

Mr Johnson has worked for Shell both in New Zealand and overseas for 20 years and has championed Shell’s adoption of sustainable development initiatives in New Zealand.

“We welcome Ed as our first fellow. His appointment is an indication of the deeper commitment to a sustainable New Zealand that the University wishes to demonstrate through forging new kinds of relationships with business,” Centre Director Delyse Springett said.

Mr Johnson said that his appointment was an honour, and reflected the commitment of all Shell staff in New Zealand to make Shell New Zealand a leader in adopting sustainable development principles.

“Shell has become one of the leaders in the energy industry at promoting the principles of sustainable development. From triple bottom line reporting, to our practical promotion of renewable energy sources like solar power, I believe that Shell has strived to really embrace sustainable development in our day to day activities.

“Shell is committed to a sustainable future for New Zealand, and for our planet, and we will continue to work with the Centre, and others interested in the same outcome,” Mr Johnson said.

Shell’s commitment to sustainable development is embraced by all Shell operations around the world. Last week Royal Dutch/Shell’s Chairman of Managing Directors Phil Watts was appointed Chairman of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). Shell New Zealand is a member of WBCSD’s New Zealand based affiliate, the New Zealand Business Council for Sustainable Development.
