Fat Cats Get the Cream


Former Shell boss Ben van Beurden received a pay package of £9.7m last year, up more than 50% from 2021.

"It's a sign of just how broken our energy system is that Shell and other fossil fuel companies have made record-breaking profits from an energy crisis that's forcing families to choose between heating their homes and putting food on the table," said Alice Harrison, fossil fuels campaign leader at Global Witness.

The boss of BP saw his pay more than double to £10m last year after the oil giant reported record profits on soaring energy prices.

Bernard Looney's pay and bonuses compare to £4.46m in the previous year.
