ExxonMobil: the Most Irresponsible Company on Earth?

| No TrackBacks

- ExxonMobil is the world's biggest publicly listed corporation - and one of the biggest polluters. A Friends of the Earth study found it responsible for 5% of all man-made carbon dioxide emitted over the past 120 years.

- In 2001 the White House thanked it for its 'active involvement' in crafting US global warming policy, describing it as 'among the companies most actively ... opposed to binding approaches to cut greenhouse gas emissions'.

- In 2005 a record 28.3% of its shareholders voted to recommend that ExxonMobil review how it will meet greenhouse gas reduction targets in countries participating in the Kyoto Protocol. Exxon's board ignored the vote.

- When asked about global warming by the Wall Street Journal in March, outgoing ExxonMobil chief executive Rex Tillerson replied: 'At a minimum, there's an enormous amount of uncertainty around this whole question.'

This is brand suicide.
