Exxon Considers Pledging ‘Net-Zero’ Carbon by 2050

  • For now, Exxon has pledged to reduce its carbon intensity and will unveil more specific climate plans later this year.
  • While it remains to be seen if  Exxon will make a net-zero carbon pledge, it is encouraging to see so many members of the private sector taking their environmental impact seriously.
