The SF Teams

Our strength lies in our people: from employees who support our portfolio of social enterprises as well as the Shell Foundation operations, to strategically aligned partner organisations and an independent board of trustees who challenge us to stay focused on our charitable objectives.

Our Team

Our team has vast experience in international business and development from around the globe. We believe the diversity of our employees backgrounds and experience – we have more than 12 nationalities from five continents represented within the team and operations in the UK, India and China – comes together to help Shell Foundation deliver on its charitable mission.

Our Trustees

As a registered UK Charity, our governance structure includes a board of trustees who oversee our
work and ensure we are working towards our Access to Energy and Sustainable Mobility
objectives. The Shell Foundation board includes a mix of senior leaders from the Shell Group and
leading figures from sectors relevant to international development.

SF Strategic Partners

We build relationships across the social investment sector with a range of foundations, corporates, investors, development agencies, governments and NGOs to support our pioneering social enterprises on their journey to scale and sustainability.

Beyond these, we also form long-term strategic partnerships that incubate new ideas, demonstrate the viability of market-based solutions and support the growth of new inclusive markets.
