The company, its operations and its employees are represented towards the European Union (EU) institutions. Our advocacy and communications team in Brussels is engaged through industry associations, including FuelsEurope, IOGP, and Cefic, in addressing the key challenge of sustainable energy development in Europe — developing affordable and secure supplies of energy in a safe and environmentally responsible manner while maintaining EU competitiveness.
By promoting free markets, free trade, and the rule of law, policymakers can foster an atmosphere in which citizens and businesses identify and pursue new innovations and opportunities, invest and build, and achieve unprecedented success.
ExxonMobil continues to support policies that promote stable investment climates for long-term business viability. We believe that market-based policies will enable Europe’s economy to grow, attract investment, and drive innovation. We support legislation that works toward further securing Europe’s energy supply, and balancing environmental goals with flexibility to let companies choose how best to achieve targets in a cost-effective way.
Because of our advocacy efforts, ExxonMobil regularly reports expenses related to representing its interests to EU institutions on the European Commission’s Transparency register.
Before Exxon and Mobil merged in 1999, both companies had been operating in Europe for well over a century.
