Performance data table
Starting in 2011, performance data include XTO Energy information. As part of our commitment to transparently communicate our performance, in 2014 we started reporting our data over a 10-year period to demonstrate performance trends over time. Data included in the performance table is guided by the reporting guidelines and indicators of IPIECA’s Oil and Gas Industry Guidance on Voluntary Sustainability Reporting (2015). For additional information on our sustainability reporting, please see the IPIECA/GRI/SDG index.

2 Incidents include injuries and illnesses. Safety data are based on information at the time of publication. Workforce includes employees and contractors.
3 Reduction from 2011 primarily due to divestment and restructuring activity in the Downstream business.
4 Regular employees are defined as active executive, management, professional, technical and wage employees who work full—time or part—time for ExxonMobil and are covered by ExxonMobil’s benefit plans and programs. Employees at our company—operated retail stores are not included.
5 The net equity greenhouse gas emissions metric was introduced in 2011 as a replacement for the direct equity greenhouse gas metric. Information has been restated back to 2005 according to the new metric. The net equity greenhouse gas metric includes direct and imported greenhouse gas emissions and excludes emissions from exports (including Hong Kong Power through mid—2014). ExxonMobil reports greenhouse gas emissions on a net equity basis for all our business operations, reflecting our percent ownership in an asset.
6 The addition of direct emissions and emissions associated with exported power and heat is equivalent to World Resources Institute (WRI) Scope 1.
7 These emissions are equivalent to WRI Scope 2.
8 Cumulative figure.
9 The value for hazardous waste from ongoing operations includes produced water classified as hazardous waste by one local authority, which is approximately 70—95 percent of the reported figure in 2008-2012.
10 Total contributions include ExxonMobil corporate and foundation donations, and employee and retiree giving through ExxonMobil’s matching gift, disaster relief and employee giving programs.
11 Beginning in 2015, our spending encompassed an expanded set of diverse classifications that includes: minority—owned businesses, women—owned businesses, small business—owned, lesbian—, gay—, bisexual— and transgender—owned businesses, veteran—owned businesses, service—disabled veteran—owned businesses and businesses owned by peoples with disabilities. Prior to 2014, spending included minority— and women—owned businesses.
12 In countries where ExxonMobil has an Upstream business presence.
* Some uncertainty exists in performance data, depending on measurement methods. Data in the report and performance data table represent best available information at the time of publication. Performance data are reported for our affiliates and those operations under direct ExxonMobil management and operational control. Includes XTO Energy performance beginning in 2011. N/A is used to indicate that data are not available.
