ExxonMobil Low Carbon Solutions is working to bring lower-emission technologies to market, making them accessible to hard-to-decarbonize industries, such as commercial transportation, power generation and heavy industry.
We are focusing on reducing emissions from our own operations and products, while also commercializing low-carbon opportunities for broad deployment around the world, including carbon capture and storage, hydrogen and low-emission fuels. We are also leveraging the corporation’s experience in hydrogen production, which, when coupled with CCS, is likely to play a critical role in a low-carbon energy system.
CCS is a safe, proven technology that can enable some of the highest-emitting sectors to meaningfully reduce their emissions. With effective government policies in place, broad deployment of commercial-scale carbon capture and storage projects could create a new industry, resulting in job creation and economic growth.
The corporation’s primary businesses - Upstream, Product Solutions and Low Carbon Solutions - provide products that enable modern life, including energy, chemicals, lubricants, and lower-emissions technologies. ExxonMobil holds an industry-leading portfolio of resources, and is one of the largest integrated fuels, lubricants and chemical companies in the world.
