Greenhouse gas emissions (net)

In 2016, ExxonMobil’s net equity greenhouse gas emissions were 125 million CO2-equivalent metric tons. Relative to our 2015 performance, our 2016 emissions increased by approximately 3 million CO2-equivalent metric tons.

*Our calculations are based on the guidance provided in API’s Compendium of Greenhouse Gas Emission Estimation Methodologies for the Oil and Gas Industry and IPIECA’s Petroleum Industry Guidelines for Reporting Greenhouse Gas Emissions. We report greenhouse gas emissions on a net equity basis for our business operations, demonstrating a share of emissions from any facility or operation in which ExxonMobil holds a financial interest, with the share reflecting the equity fractional interest.
