BREAKING: ExxonMobil Fined for Violating Ukraine Sanctions, Greenpeace Response

WASHINGTON -

In response to the United States Treasury Department’s decision to fine ExxonMobil for violating Ukraine-related sanctions, Greenpeace USA Climate Director Kelly Mitchell said,

“The Treasury Department’s decision to penalize ExxonMobil, under former CEO Rex Tillerson’s watch, for violating US sanctions is a reminder that massive oil companies are not above the law. Even with Rex Tillerson leading the State Department, people in this country can hold powerful corporations accountable and must continue to do so. This move should embolden United States attorneys general in their investigations into what ExxonMobil and Rex Tillerson knew about the risks of climate change and the company’s potential withholding of that information from the public and shareholders.”
