That’s why ExxonMobil reports on our performance in safety, health, environmental management, and community engagement and investment.
I’m excited to announce that our 2015 Corporate Citizenship Report is now available. Here are a few snapshots of what is in our comprehensive review:
- Improving Safety. We strive to be a global safety leader and continue to work toward our goal of Nobody Gets Hurt. Over the past 10 years, ExxonMobil has reduced our workforce lost-time incident rate by more than 30 percent.
- Reducing Emissions. Since 2000, ExxonMobil has spent nearly $7 billion on technology to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including on energy efficiency, flare reduction, carbon capture and sequestration, and research on lower-emission energy solutions. Relative to our 2014 performance, ExxonMobil’s 2015 greenhouse gas emissions decreased by approximately 1 million CO2-equivalent metric tons.
- Environmental Management. Our worldwide environmental expenditures in 2015 totaled approximately $5.6 billion, including an estimated $1.8 billion in capital expenditures and about $3.8 billion in operating expenses. Over the past five years, we’ve reduced spills greater than one barrel by more than 30 percent, and we have reduced freshwater consumption at our operations by more than five percent since 2007.
- Community Investment. In 2015, ExxonMobil contributed $268 million to communities around the world, including investments in civic, community and environment initiatives, education, and women and health programs.
Throughout the report, you will find relevant case studies that provide an in-depth look at how we operate and approach different opportunities and challenges, including on climate change, technology, local workforces, malaria, education, and women’s economic empowerment.
I’ll be writing more about some of the findings from our Corporate Citizenship Report in the weeks ahead. For now, I encourage you to go and download the full report, read the results yourself, and find out more about how we work to power the world’s progress.
