ExxonMobil is an American multinational oil and gas corporation headquartered in Irving, Texas. The company was formed in 1999 through the merger of Exxon Corporation and Mobil Corporation, two of the largest oil companies in the world at the time.
ExxonMobil is involved in all aspects of the oil and gas industry, from exploration and production to refining and marketing. The company has operations in more than 50 countries around the world and is one of the largest publicly traded companies by market capitalization.
ExxonMobil has faced criticism for its role in contributing to climate change through the production and consumption of fossil fuels. The company has been accused of downplaying the risks of climate change and funding efforts to spread misinformation about the scientific consensus on the issue.
In recent years, ExxonMobil has faced increasing pressure from shareholders and activists to address its role in climate change and transition to cleaner forms of energy. The company has announced plans to invest in low-carbon technologies and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, but its progress in these areas has been criticized by some as insufficient.
