Shell's climate policies have been openly criticised by a former contractor, who accuses the oil and gas giant of "double-talk" by claiming it intends to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while working on new fossil fuel sources.

Caroline Dennett, who claims to have advised Shell on safety problems for more than a decade, announced that she was terminating her ties with the company and urged others in the fossil fuel business to do the same.

Dennet wrote on the business networking site LinkedIn, "I’m quitting because of Shell’s double talk on climate."

"They know that continued oil and gas extraction causes extreme harm to our climate, our environment, and people. And whatever they say, Shell is simply not winding down on fossil fuels,” she added.

Shell, which was about to hold its annual general meeting, said it was committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

The company said, "We have set targets for the short, medium and long term, and have every intention of hitting them. We are already investing billions of dollars in low-carbon energy, although the world will still need oil and gas for decades to come in sectors that cannot be easily decarbonised.”

Last month, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres criticised some government and business leaders for saying one thing and doing another when it comes to addressing global warming.
