Sustainability is at the heart of our business, especially in light of current events around the globe. This means providing energy in a responsible manner and respecting people, their safety, and the environment, all with the goal of working towards a better world. With Covid-19 changing our way of life, Shell is committed to responding to changing global needs and maintaining support for entrepreneurs. We want to solidify this commitment by championing these concepts around the world, rewarding entrepreneurs whose businesses work towards positive goals.

This year, we have partnered with Shell Global Commercial to deliver Top Ten Innovators (TTI) 2020, a global competition to find innovative solutions among our Shell LiveWIRE alumni that promote Creating a More Liveable World. It has been our pleasure to hear from entrepreneurs that help us move towards an economy that prioritises a sustainable future.

We were thrilled to have received more than 130 applications from around the world and were inspired by the groundbreaking ways our Shell LiveWIRE entrepreneurs set about creating a more liveable world. After a rigorous judging process and a public vote that drew in more than 27,000 votes from over 170 countries, I’m pleased to announce we’ve chosen our 2020 Top Ten Innovators. Please read on to learn more about these incredible businesses.

Congratulations, entrepreneurs!
