About Addressing Climate Change (source: 2006 corporate citizen report)

Climate remains an extraordinarily complex area of scientific study. Nevertheless, the risk to society and ecosystems from rising greenhouse gas emissions could prove to be significant. So, despite the areas of uncertainty that exist, it is prudent to develop and implement strategies to address this risk.
At ExxonMobil, we are implementing strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at our facilities; to deploy energy-efficient technologies across our global operations; to partner with automakers and engine manufacturers to improve consumers’ fuel efficiency; and, to invest in research and development of lower-emission energy technologies that can be applied globally. These initiatives and others are detailed in this report. Public policy is also important. In our view, the most effective policies will promote global participation and maximize the use of markets, as well as promote transparency, minimize complexity, and provide flexibility.
