    HOUSTON -- Royal Dutch Shell released its 2008 Sustainability Report, describing the company’s ongoing efforts to help meet one of the defining challenges facing society this century: providing more energy and lower CO2 emissions, according to ReportAlert.info.

    -- Providing customers with cleaner products, including Shell Economy Formula and Shell FuelSave fuels.
    -- Stepping up advocacy efforts with governments, and calling for an effective international policy framework for CO2 management with a price for emitting CO2.
