Federal lobbying

Direct lobbying activities

ExxonMobil employs in-house and contract lobbyists, who undertake a range of engagements in order to pursue policy issues of importance to the corporation. This includes face-to-face, virtual, and one-on-one meetings, as well as participation in a range of trade and other organizations, at the federal, state and local level. Our federal internal lobbying is reported on a quarterly basis. These disclosures provide a summary of the issues lobbied, and the associated costs. The quarterly reports are available on our corporate website, as well as on the United States Senate website. For clarity and ease of reference, we have consolidated and reformatted these reports into one easy-to-read table below.
