Environmental initiatives

ExxonMobil considers risk at every stage of development, and we continuously work to manage environmental impacts.

Protecting the environment

Understanding the impacts of our operations

Reliable and affordable energy is essential to human progress. At the same time – like all industrial processes – energy development involves risk. Our approach is guided by an in-depth scientific understanding of the environmental impacts of our operations and a commitment to develop, maintain and operate projects using effective management systems, processes and appropriate standards.

Our Operations Integrity Management System is the framework that helps put our Corporate Environment Policy into action by establishing common worldwide expectations for addressing environmental risks.
