Marieke Verhoeven

Carbon Solution Program Manager, Shell Aviation

As Carbon Solution Program Manager, I am responsible for Avelia, a blockchain powered book-and-claim solution that provides customers with fully traceable environmental attributes of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) to help decarbonize air travel. Developed by Shell and Accenture, with support from the Energy Web Foundation, Avelia comes to market via American Express Global Business Travel’s leading business travel service. 

With Avelia, airlines and business customers could simultaneously reduce emissions in their respective scopes, while ensuring transparency and accountability by avoiding issues such as double counting.

Instrumental is the partnering with customers, business leaders and technical Subject Matter Experts, something I’m deeply passionate about.

During my time at Shell, I have worked at different businesses across the globe ranging from Chemicals and Energy parks, Retail and Aviation in the area of Climate Strategy, Footprint Reporting and Assurance, ESG Reporting and Health, Safety and Environment.

I am married to Sander and we live near The Hague NL with our 2 children. In my leisure time I enjoy walking along our nearby beach or playing board games with family and friends.
