We are working to reduce air emissions associated with our projects, operations and the products we deliver through numerous initiatives, including major capital investments, implementation of cost-effective new technologies and adoption of creative new operating practices. In some cases, these reductions are driven by new regulations.
Performance and initiatives
Our combined emissions of volatile organic compounds, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides have decreased by almost 31 percent over the past 10 years across all our businesses. For historical data on ExxonMobil’s air emissions, please see the performance data table.
New air measurement technologies are making it easier to monitor ambient air at our Downstream facilities in the United States and Canada. Data collected around the perimeter of our facilities is publicly available to local communities.
