Shell and its Advertising Agency need to think again…

The decision of the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) to castigate Shell (again!) for it’s misleading corporate advertising is further evidence that Shell is utterly slipshod in its monitoring of copy and creative proposals from its advertising agency. Having managed Advertising Agencies for Shell in various locations around the world over the years I know that the client MUST ensure that the copy is legal, decent honest and truthful – you cannot leave that to the Agency. This is not to criticise agencies, but to clearly define what is their role – and what is the client’s. read more

Trawling the Internet seeking information about Court cases involving Shell, we stumbled across details of current litigation in the U.S. Courts against Shell International for alleged theft of Intellectual Property.

I personally know of several High Court Actions successfully brought against Shell on the same grounds, all by me. All resulted in media coverage.

Is Shell not concerned that it must be losing out from parties no longer willing to disclose ideas to the group because of its reputation as a serial poacher and predator of Intellectual Property? read more

State inspectors say the refinery was not following the equipment readiness program in its legally required oil spill preparedness plan. They also wrote that the refinery lacked maintenance records for response equipment, nor could operators verify the location and condition of some of that gear.

Shell ad banned over ‘greenwashing’ claims

by Colin Marrs Campaign 13-Aug-08, 00:01

LONDON – The advertising watchdog today slammed an ad by Shell International, saying it made misleading claims over the company’s investment in green technology.

The print ad appeared in the Financial Times in February, with the headline “We invest today’s profits in tomorrow’s solutions”.

The ASA upheld two complaints by WWF that the ad cited two examples of investment which were not environmentally sustainable.

Commenting on the ruling, David Norman, director of campaigns at WWF-UK, said: “The ASA’s decision to uphold WWF’s complaint sends a strong signal to business and industry that greenwash is unacceptable,”  read more
