‘A Trojan horse of legitimacy’: Shell launches a ‘climate tech’ startup advertising jobs in oil and gas

Shell-owned startup Onward, aimed at fostering a "clean energy future," is under scrutiny for its focus on oil and gas jobs, raising concerns about greenwashing.
Despite portraying itself as a hub for clean energy innovation, most available jobs on its platform are in fossil fuel production. This contradiction has led experts to question the genuine intentions of such climate tech ventures launched by oil companies.

Meanwhile, Shell has shifted away from its climate commitments, with its new CEO prioritizing increased oil production despite high profits.

Amidst this backdrop, dialogues around collaboration in combatting climate change are criticized as providing polluters with undue influence, masquerading corporate interests as legitimate contributions to climate action.
