Exxon, Chevron and Occidental Join Oil and Gas Climate Group
Supermajors Exxon and Chevron along with Occidental Petroleum are the latest three companies to join group committed to addressing climate change.

Exxon Mobil Corporation, Chevron Corporation and Occidental Petroleum will become official members of the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) September 24, the organization announced Sept. 20.

The three companies represent 5 percent of global oil and gas production and with their addition, OGCI members represent 30 percent of global oil and gas production and supplies close to 20 percent of global primary energy consumption.

The goal of the OGCI, which launched in 2014, is for members to work collaboratively toward solutions to mitigate the risks of climate change.

“It will take the collective efforts of many in the energy industry and society to develop scalable, affordable solutions that will be needed to address the risks of climate change,” ExxonMobil CEO Darren Woods said in a company statement. “Our mission is to supply energy for modern life and improve living standards around the world while minimizing impacts on the environment. This dual challenge is one of the most important issues facing society and our company.”

Exxon, Chevron and Occidental join 10 other OGCI members. Those companies are BP, CNPC, Eni, Equinor, Pemex, Petrobras, Repsol, Saudi Aramco, Shell and Total.
