Netherlands Chamber of Commerce in Japan Luncheon Meeting on 13 May, 2016
|Date||May 13, 2016|
|Content||Netherlands Chamber of Commerce in Japan is pleased to announce their Guest Speaker: Mr. Chris Gunner, Japan Country Chairman, Shell
Climate change is a serious threat to our future which needs to be tackled immediately. Innovation and a transition to a low carbon economy will be the key in achieving stable, sustainable energy future.
Shell has long recognized both the importance of the climate challenge and the critical role energy has in enabling a decent quality of life for people across the world; wherever they live. But our energy system is changing to meet greater demand and environmental stresses. The big challenge, simply put, for both society and a company like Shell, is how to provide “much more energy and much less CO2”.
Chris Gunner, Shell Country Chairman, Japan will talk about how Shell will play its role in providing those solutions to bring more energy and less CO2; especially in areas where it has, and can develop, the skills needed for natural gas production, future fuels, such as biofuels and hydrogen, and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).
Chris Gunner is Shell's Japan Country Chairman. After economics and legal studies in Australia and Japan, Chris joined Shell in 1981 and worked in Australia, before undertaking a series of overseas assignments in Tokyo, London, and Kuala Lumpur.
He returned to Shell Australia as head of Corporate Planning & Economics, and in 1996 became its National Retail Manager responsible for the service station and related businesses. In 1998 he was appointed Shell Australia’s General Manager - Natural Gas. He was then assigned to London as Vice President - North Asia for Shell International Gas, and in 2000 he was appointed President of Shell Gas & Power Japan.
From 2003 to 2009 Chris had responsibility for the development and management of Shell Australia’s integrated Exploration & Production and Gas & Power business as its Chief Operating Officer.
He returned to Tokyo in April 2009 as Country Chairman and President of Shell Japan, and in 2013 he was appointed Country Chairman and President of Shell Korea.
In 2015 he resumed the role of Country Chairman and President of Shell Japan Limited, and is President of Shell Chemicals Japan Ltd. and a non-executive director of Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K.
