Reliable and affordable energy is essential to human progress. At the same time - like all industrial processes - energy development involves risk. ExxonMobil considers risk at every stage of development, and we continuously work to reduce environmental impacts. Rigorous standards and good practices that consider the needs of the communities where we operate guide our efforts.

Air emissions reductions

We continue to seek opportunities to reduce the environmental impacts from our operations and our products.

Ecosystem services

Biodiversity and ecosystem services – the direct and indirect benefits people obtain from the environment, such as food, water, shelter, clean air and cultural identity – are important for society, and we work to protect them wherever we operate.

Environmental drilling initiatives

It is Exxon Mobil Corporation’s policy to conduct its business in a manner that is compatible with the balanced environmental and economic needs of the communities in which it operates.

Environmental stewardship

Our commitment to operating in an environmentally responsible manner is anchored in our Environment Policy, which fosters appropriate operating practices and training, and requires our facilities to be designed, operated and managed with the goal of preventing environmental incidents.

Freshwater management

In the communities where we operate, we evaluate how our activities impact water quality, availability and demand.

Site remediation

As part of our life cycle approach to protecting the environment, we continue to enhance the rehabilitation of our no-longer-needed properties so they can have a beneficial next use.

Spill performance

When assessing potential impacts to water or land, spill prevention is a top priority.
