About us

SHV Energy is a leading global distributor of off-grid energy, such as LPG and LNG, and is active in sustainable fuels and renewable energy solutions.

We encourage and enable our customers to move away from higher carbon and more polluting solid and liquid fuels, such as heating oil, coal and woody biomass* and adopt cleaner alternatives, including LPG, LNG, bioLPG, and renewable solutions. This switch results in a significant reduction in carbon dioxide and particulate matter emissions.

We are a market leader that operates with international reach and a local focus. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of SHV, a family-owned multinational, and we consist of a group of specialised energy companies, including such brands as Calor, Ipragaz, Liquigas, Primagaz and Supergasbras.


*LPG has lower emissions compared to polluting solid and liquid fuels, and has virtually no particulate matter emissions, improving both indoor and outdoor air quality. It also eliminates nearly all black carbon emissions from household cooking and helps reduce deforestation.

Our aspirational goals

The energy products and the services we supply are essential for customers around the world. That affords us a unique position to help drive the transition to cleaner, more sustainable energy solutions that are also accessible and affordable.

We engaged with our stakeholders to identify tangible and measurable priorities, which we then mapped against their level of importance to stakeholders and their significance to our business.

We emerged with five aspirational goals, which guide our day-to-day activities:

  • Improving health, safety and wellbeing

  • Embedding
    innovation

  • Sustaining the environment

  • Enhancing employee and community development

  • Safeguarding
    integrity
