She has provided invaluable advice to me as Chair and I wish her all the best for her future endeavours.
“I’d also like to thank Martina for her contribution to Shell since joining the Board in 2020. Her expertise in technology leadership has been invaluable as Shell navigates its way through the energy transition, and I’ve valued her sound advice on many issues.
“I’m delighted to welcome Sir Charles and Leena to the Board. Sir Charles brings a wealth of experience in economics, financial management and government, and I know he will make a great contribution to the Shell board.
“Leena is a leading global authority on climate science, based in India — an important market and operational centre for Shell. Her decades of experience on energy, environment and climate change policy, as well as her expertise in sustainable development, will further strengthen Shell’s energy transition efforts as we continue to deliver the energy the world needs today, while working to decarbonise our own activities and those of our customers.”
