Shell to buy Inspire Energy in green energy push

Reuters reports that Shell will buy Inspire Energy as it looks to increase its green energy production.

The C3 Take
  • Shell is buying Inspire Energy as a way to reach its goal to be net-zero by 2050.
  • Shell has come under pressure from investors, consumers, and courts to reduce its greenhouse gas footprint by mid-century.
  • The private sector is leading the way in the clean energy transition.

“Like other oil companies, Shell has come under investor pressure to slash planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions and said it plans to increase its spending on renewables and low carbon technologies to up to 25% of its overall budget by 2025.”
