Our business presence should have a positive influence on the people in the communities where we operate. Through our livelihood support programs, we are helping to build the capacity of communities and enhance the livelihoods of Papua New Guineans in our project areas. SOCIAL 22 | Sustainability Report Highlights Human rights ExxonMobil is committed to respecting human rights as a fundamental principle in our operations, reinforced through training and integrated into our policies and practices. Our business presence should have a positive influence on the people in the communities where we operate. Our practices reflect the spirit and intent of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights and are guided by elements of the United Nations’ Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights . ExxonMobil conducts human rights training to help build an understanding of human rights and an awareness of potential human rights risks. More than 1,800 employees in applicable positions and locations across 49 countries have completed the training since 2015. We use a risk screening tool to assess potential human rights impacts associated with our activities, and we integrate it with our Environmental, Socioeconomic and Health Impact Assessment and Management process so risks are appropriately assessed, mitigated and tracked. Our processes for stakeholder engagement and grievance management support our integrated approach to human rights due diligence. Through our grievance management process, for example, we help provide effective, accessible and culturally appropriate channels for individuals or communities to raise concerns, whether through community engagements, electronic or in-person submission, or third parties such as civil society organizations or nongovernmental organizations. We then work to manage, respond to and, ideally, resolve issues in a timely manner, as appropriate. Our efforts to manage human rights issues reflect evolving international initiatives. We are actively involved with IPIECA, the global oil and gas industry association for advancing environmental and social issues, to monitor business and human rights trends. Our engagement also includes developing and sharing practices on human rights due diligence and human rights supply chain management from the oil and natural gas industry and other extractive industries. In 2019, ExxonMobil contributed to the new edition of the Sustainability Reporting Guidance for the Oil and Gas Industry , jointly developed by IPIECA, the American Petroleum Institute, and the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers. We were actively engaged in the development of the expanded social performance section, which embeds human rights considerations throughout the sustainability reporting guidance.
