Exxon leadership works to reject shareholder resolutions on climate change

In response to the results of the ExxonMobil shareholder meeting today, where resolutions regarding Exxon’s role in the climate crisis were considered, David Turnbull, Campaigns Director of Oil Change International, released the following statement:

“Today’s ExxonMobil shareholders meeting has been a stark example of Exxon’s continued intransigence when it comes to climate change. Time and time again, shareholders demanded they take action to address the impact the company has on the global climate. And time and time again, Exxon’s leadership actively worked to reject such proposals. Today’s meeting clearly shows that Exxon continues to deny its role in our climate crisis even amidst strong pressure from its shareholders, and will do everything it can to continue their disastrous status quo that imperils our climate and will ultimately destroy their own business.”
