Clean and safe energy

SHV Energy’s main goal is to make clean and safe energy options accessible and affordable to as many customers and companies as possible.

Worldwide demand for energy is expected to increase further in the coming decades. At the same time, the impact of this on natural resources and climate change requires immediate action for the short, medium and long term.
As a family-owned company with a long-term view, we are uniquely positioned to be a part of the solution. We are able to look to the future, set ambitious goals, and work steadily to achieve them.

The vital tools in achieving our goals around sustainability are our LPG, LNG and bioLPG products. These enable us to provide cleaner energy options to the significant but often overlooked off-grid segment of both consumers and businesses, replacing options like oil or coal and therefore reducing emissions whilst improving air quality.

Our stakeholders

As a group of companies with a focus on value creation, we view stakeholder engagement as critical to our business. We use the input from our stakeholders to create, validate and improve our sustainability strategy. 

Our primary stakeholders are those who have a significant interest in the actions and views of the group, and whose actions and views are, in turn, of significant interest to us.

We supply our customers with energy for their domestic heating, industrial heating, cooking and transportation needs. Through primarily serving the off-grid population, we make cleaner, greener energy options accessible and affordable for as many customers and businesses as possible. We strive to achieve this whilst minimising our negative impact on the environment and without compromising on the highest health and safety standards.

What we are doing to achieve our goals

Our products and services consist of cleaner energy, we tailor solutions to those that are not on the grid, and we are ever expanding our biofuels and renewables.

Our approach is pragmatic – our products are not the only or the ultimate energy solution for everyone, but they play a key, practical role in the overall energy mix. Our solutions are always cleaner than oil and coal. We provide LPG, LNG and bioLPG to help customers everywhere contribute towards the energy transition.

An important part of our offering is our direct interface with our customers through physically delivering our energy; this allows us a unique opportunity to understand their needs and to ensure that we meet them.

A significant, yet often overlooked part of the global population is not connected to the gas grid. In rural areas, people or businesses still rely on sources like coal and oil for activities such as cooking, heating and powering vehicles. We provide these groups with cleaner, safer and lower-carbon energy options. It’s a key step towards decarbonisation, and an integral part of how we’re driving the energy transition.

Our goal is to have 100 percent of our energy being produced from non-fossil, bio-based feedstock by 2040. To achieve this, we are doing two things. Firstly, we are increasing our supply of bioLPG. This is identical to conventional LPG, which is ideal for those wishing to reduce their carbon footprint. In 2019, we announced the construction of a new, advanced biofuel plant in the north of the Netherlands. Secondly, we are continuing to explore and develop alternative renewable energy solutions and energy-efficiency measures.

We work together with the best in the field to make a difference. An important aspect of our way of working is to use our experience to influence and lead the industry forward. In ‘advancing energy together’, the reference and commitment to ‘together’ involves all of our key stakeholders, not just our employees and customers. We believe it is in the interest of the entire industry, and wider society, that we bring other businesses with us on the energy transition journey – our goal of ‘Advancing Energy Together’ cannot be achieved without collaboration..
