Meeting Energy Needs, Minimizing Environmental Impacts
For more than 135 years, ExxonMobil has strived to meet society’s evolving needs. We work to meet growing demands for energy and chemical products, while advancing other priorities such as economic growth, environmental protection, education, poverty reduction, health, security and human rights.
The energy we produce is important. So is the way we produce it.
The men and women of ExxonMobil are focused on meeting society’s dual challenge – meeting energy needs while also minimizing the environmental impacts of energy use, including the risks of climate change. It’s one of society’s largest and most complex challenges and requires thoughtful engagement at all levels, focusing on practical and affordable solutions that work at the necessary scale.
At ExxonMobil, we work extensively to reduce emissions and other environmental impacts of energy use in our operations and through the products we sell. We’re also a leader in researching and developing energy technologies – like algae biofuels and carbon capture, utilization and storage – that could potentially play a role in helping mitigate the risks of climate change.
Another key sustainability focus is health. We directly impact this focus area through our commitment to the safety of our workers and members of the communities where we work. We continue to make good progress toward our goal of Nobody Gets Hurt. In 2017, we had the fewest recordable injuries in our company’s history.
In the communities where we operate, we routinely dialogue with local officials responsible for emergency response, health, safety and environmental protection.
Our commitment to communities extends well beyond health and safety. We work to enhance economic development by hiring and training qualified local workers and making local investments.
At ExxonMobil, we are committed to creating long-term shareholder value by making a positive contribution to society.
