The new Shell Café represents a significant rebranding and an enhancement in its overall appearance compared to the original Deli Café – and now includes a dedicated customer reception area to enhance convenience. Shell Café has adopted three distinct formats: 1. Shell Café Clip-in: This innovative format is designed to seamlessly integrate Shell Café with the Shell Select convenience store, allowing customers to conveniently purchase travel essentials while enjoying 100% Arabica coffee and a variety of delectable beverages. The menu also features an array of fresh bakery items, including croissants, puffs, pies, donuts, sandwiches, and diverse food offerings; 2. Stand-alone Shell Café: This format prioritizes the provision of drinks and bakery products within a welcoming shop atmosphere. Comfortable and spacious, it serves as the perfect spot for travellers to recharge during their journey; and 3. Kiosk-style Shell Café: Catering to Shell gas stations with limited room, this kiosk-type format ensures that customers can still enjoy the Shell Café experience despite space constraints.

Shell’s net carbon intensity
Also, in this announcement we may refer to Shell’s “Net Carbon Intensity”, which includes Shell’s carbon emissions from the production of our energy products, our suppliers’ carbon emissions in supplying energy for that production and our customers’ carbon emissions associated with their use of the energy products we sell. Shell only controls its own emissions. The use of the term Shell’s “Net Carbon Intensity” is for convenience only and not intended to suggest these emissions are those of Shell plc or its subsidiaries.
Shell’s net-Zero Emissions Target
Shell’s operating plan, outlook and budgets are forecasted for a ten-year period and are updated every year. They reflect the current economic environment and what we can reasonably expect to see over the next ten years. Accordingly, they reflect our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Net Carbon Intensity (NCI) targets over the next ten years. However, Shell’s operating plans cannot reflect our 2050 net-zero emissions target and 2035 NCI target, as these targets are currently outside our planning period. In the future, as society moves towards net-zero emissions, we expect Shell’s operating plans to reflect this movement. However, if society is not net zero in 2050, as of today, there would be significant risk that Shell may not meet this target.
Forward Looking Non-GAAP measures
This announcement may contain certain forward-looking non-GAAP measures such as [cash capital expenditure] and [divestments]. We are unable to provide a reconciliation of these forward-looking Non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures because certain information needed to reconcile those Non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is dependent on future events some of which are outside the control of Shell, such as oil and gas prices, interest rates and exchange rates. Moreover, estimating such GAAP measures with the required precision necessary to provide a meaningful reconciliation is extremely difficult and could not be accomplished without unreasonable effort. Non-GAAP measures in respect of future periods which cannot be reconciled to the most comparable GAAP financial measure are calculated in a manner which is consistent with the accounting policies applied in Shell plc’s consolidated financial statements.
