One of the greatest opportunities for society to reduce GHG emissions is through the use of natural gas in power generation.
ExxonMobil believes producing our existing hydrocarbon reserves is essential to meeting growing global energy demand.
Our facilities are designed, constructed and operated to withstand a variety of extreme climactic and other conditions, with safety factors being built in to cover a number of engineering uncertainties, which cover those associated with potential climate change impacts.
Over the next few decades, population and income growth – and an unprecedented expansion of the global middle class – are expected to create new demands for energy.
We believe that carbon emissions will plateau and start to decrease starting around 2030 as energy efficiency spreads and as various carbon-reduction policies are enacted around the world.
At ExxonMobil, we are dedicated to reducing emissions from our own operations. This is one of the most important elements in the shared effort to mitigate the risks of climate change.
