Flora Ji leads Shell’s global Nature Based Solutions (NBS) organization. She and team focus on the development of high-quality natural carbon sinks with environmental and social co-benefits, novel nature-based market and customer solutions that can contribute to climate change mitigation and net zero journey. Shell NBS invests in activities that protect, sustainably manage, and restore natural ecosystems, including forest, agriculture, wetland, grassland, and coastal ecosystems. In 2021 alone, Shell allocated more than $480 million to various carbon credit projects, to be deployed across the length of the contracts. More than 95% of this funding is for NBS projects. We take on long-term commitments in NBS projects, work closely with local communities, governments, NGOs, and other experts to ensure that the projects we invest in make a demonstrable difference. Flora joined Shell in 2006 and have worked across downstream and upstream business in operational, commercial, and business management roles in China, The Netherlands, Kazakhstan, and Singapore. She holds an MBA from IMD, Switzerland.
