April 3 (Reuters) – Exxon Mobil Corp, the world’s
largest publicly traded oil company, has agreed to disclose more
information about the environmental risks of hydraulic
fracturing, the process known as fracking.
In an agreement with New York City’s pension funds, which
control Exxon shares worth roughly $1.02 billion, the company
would report on risks surrounding disposal of fracking waste
water, air pollution, methane emissions from oil and natural gas
wells, and other issues.
