ExxonMobil

Public Information and Policy Research

Exxon provides support to selected organizations that assess public policy alternatives on issues with direct bearing on the company's business operations and interests. These policy issues include international relations, national policy within the United States and local community matters where Exxon has a significant presence.

We also emphasize legal policy research and education, as well as environmental policy and economic regulation. Support has also been directed to international groups that promote democratization, anti-corruption efforts and market liberalization.
