Environmental performance


Our diverse portfolio of projects requires us to work in remote and sensitive environments including Arctic, deepwater and biodiverse locations.

ExxonMobil considers a full range of potential environmental and social risks associated with the lifecycle of our operations and products. In doing so, we gain a holistic understanding of our impacts from initial exploration activities to decommissioning.

ExxonMobil is committed to excellence in environmental performance. It takes every single one of us, every day. It’s simply how we work.
