The “1995 Global Scenarios” documents are an incomplete set of Royal Dutch/Shell Group’s (“Shell”) analysis of the “pre-determined … forces of globalisation, liberalisation, and technology.” A part of a larger collection maintained by Jelmer Mommers of De Correspondent in a trove of internal Shell documents, these Global Scenarios are the beginning of a longer trend to create future scenarios (referenced again in 1998).
