Trade associations, think tanks, and coalitions

ExxonMobil provides support to a variety of trade associations, think tanks, and coalitions in order to promote informed dialogue and sound public policy in areas relevant to the Corporation’s interests and operations. These areas include a wide range of topics, among them: corporate governance, environment (including climate change), education, economic development, fiscal policy, international trade, labor/pension matters, civil justice reform, public health, regulatory issues, sustainability and workplace safety.

Given the diversity of ExxonMobil’s global business and the unique operating environment in the dozens of countries we operate in, we are members of a wide range of organizations, from general business associations to others more specific to our industry. A portion of the support provided to these organizations may be used by the organizations for lobbying. 

Below is a list of all U.S.-based organizations that reported a percentage of the 2020 funding they received from ExxonMobil (Corporation or affiliates) as a lobbying expense.  The expenditures listed for each organization below include federal, state, local and grassroots lobbying expenses and exceeds the specific disclosure requirements of the Lobbying Disclosure Act. As a result, the amounts reported below will exceed other legal disclosures made by the Company.
