Community engagement and human rights


ExxonMobil works in communities all over the world, each with its own unique cultures, needs and sensitivities.

Identifying and mitigating potential negative social impacts is integral to developing long-term, positive relationships with these communities. At ExxonMobil, we aim to promote and respect human rights in all areas where we work.

In Angola, our key initiatives in women's empowerment and malaria support the priorities of the government and local communities. Through strategic partnerships, a shared responsibility to sustainability and an aligned vision, we have a positive impact on communities where we operate.
