在线免费观看Shell staff and contractors drive around 1.1 billion kilometres each year to deliver products to our customers or to keep our operations running. That’s equivalent to driving about 75 times around the world each day. We help keep our drivers safe through training programmes, by limiting their journeys, and by enforcing our global road safety standards. We also work with communities and global partners to improve road safety in the countries where we operate. In Myanmar, together with the Myanmar Red Cross Society (MRCS), Shell launched a road safety campaign in March 2017 to educate drivers and community members along the Yangon-Nay Pyi Taw Highway, a roadway notorious for its high crash rate.
Community Skills & Enterprise development
在线免费观看Shell has programmes in place to support and encourage the building of new businesses and generate local employment. In Myanmar, for example, together with our partner Montrose we are implementing a programme to improve the livelihoods of a rural population through increasing farmers’ incomes with improved production practices, specifically in the coconut copra and groundnuts value chains. To support value chain strengthening, the programme also aims to improve irrigation practices and market linkages.

The PhD scholarship programme started in 2014 and supports two Myanmar students.
