Exxon to cut methane emissions in bid to tackle climate change

This article discusses the Exxon Mobil Corp announcement that it was targeting a 15 percent cut in methane emissions by 2020, the latest effort by an oil major to reduce its carbon footprint and address climate change concerns.

Exxon, like oil and gas majors across the world, is working to placate environmentalists and governments who are concerned about pollution from fossil fuels.

BP said last month it would keep carbon emissions flat over the decade to 2025 to help tackle climate change.

Exxon, the world’s largest publicly traded oil producer, had said in September it would replace oil equipment and update technology to curb methane emissions from its U.S. shale facilities.
