Sample article from our Automobile Industry

February 22, 2022 (press release) –

This year, Shell globally announced it was aiming to be a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050 or sooner, with Pennzoil being a supporting brand within North America. Being in sync with both society and stakeholders, Pennzoil is inviting motorists to drive the future of sustainability by reducing their own carbon footprints alongside us. Globally, Shell is working to avoid, reduce and then offset  the annual emissions of more than 52 million gallons of advanced synthetic lubricants, expecting to compensate around 700,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions per year; the equivalent of taking approximately 340,000 cars off the road for one year1.

As Shell works to make a difference on a global scale, individuals alike are working to minimize their carbon footprint on a personal scale, with a variety of daily changes, including:

Reducing waste at home with reusable products such as metal straws and canvas shopping bags
Turning off tap water while brushing teeth or using cold water for laundry
Minimizing paper product usage (such as bills and receipts) by opting for digital alternatives
As a company, Shell is exploring a range of initiatives that seek to avoid, reduce, and offset emissions while at the same time sharing that benefit with motorists on their own sustainability journeys. For example, we are finding innovative ways to use more recycled content in our plastic bottles and exploring different packaging concepts that are more sustainable such as Shell EcoBox.

Even better, Pennzoil now offers carbon neutral2 motor oils. When choosing these carbon neutral products, you're joining us in protecting and restoring natural ecosystems around the world and in the US3. As a motorist, you can reduce your CO2 footprint with improved fuel efficiency when using select Pennzoil full synthetic low-viscosity (0W) motor oils. Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic motor oil is designed for unbeatable engine protection4 and lower emissions5, without compromise.

Check out some insights and helpful tips from our friends on how switching to a Pennzoil carbon neutral motor oil is a step they are taking on their sustainability journey.
