Message from Lorelie Osial

Even after having one of the longest lockdowns globally and significantly suffering from the effects of the pandemic, the Philippines continues to be one of the fastest-rising economies globally. The country’s growth will be supported by vast infrastructure projects with new roads and highways that will reach new communities and connect more places.

As the Philippines grows, Pilipinas Shell continues to strive to be a partner in development and serve current demands. But more importantly, we look forward to the future and create more innovative products and services that could deal with the fastchanging needs of our times.

We are pursuing our reset and refocused strategy as we aim to expand our mobility network with 40-60 new sites per year, and grow our convenience and retail offer with 550 Select stores and 900 vehicle servicing sites by 2025. These new developments, among others, are anchored on offering more integrated solutions to vehicle care and maintenance, new customer-centric amenities, and modern site and structure design that considers sustainable construction and operation.

We are also focused on digitization and will soon offer more digital tools to help customers manage their fleet easily.

Sustainability requires a multi-sectoral approach. In Pilipinas Shell, we have been working on nature-based solutions offering to help clients in their decarbonization journey. Furthermore, we are also partnering with government agencies and the private sector to launch a program to explore the opportunities to use recycled plastic on road projects.

We will also continue to invest in our world-class supply chain with an aspiration to have five medium-range (MR) import terminals nationwide. Finally, we hope to maintain our leading position in corporate governance, talent management and progressively move towards our low carbon operations.

There is so much to look forward to and I am excited, as we recover, grow our business and power progress for the Philippines and the Filipino people.
