Energy underpins modern life. People around the world rely on energy to cook their meals, heat their homes, fuel their cars, and power their hospitals, schools and businesses. Our industry plays a critical role in fulfilling society’s economic needs and providing the foundation for a healthier and more prosperous future.
We also play an essential role in protecting the environment and addressing the risks of climate change. ExxonMobil is taking significant steps to minimize the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from our own operations.
This year’s Energy & Carbon Summary details some of these efforts. It is aligned with the core elements of the framework developed by the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, designed to encourage the informed conversation society needs on these important issues. Through our active participation in this conversation, and our ongoing actions to meet energy needs and environmental expectations, ExxonMobil will continue to take a leadership role in meeting the world’s dual challenge.
