Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

Section 13(p) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 13p-1 thereunder (collectively, the “conflict mineral rules”) require certain disclosures concerning supply sources for conflict minerals consisting of gold, tin, tungsten, or tantalum – that may be necessary to the manufacture or functionality of a company’s products. Terms and phrases used but not defined in this disclosure have the meanings given under the conflict mineral rules.

No conflict mineral is intentionally added to, or serves as a functional component of, products sold by ExxonMobil. However, the manufacturing process for certain of ExxonMobil’s refined petroleum and petrochemical products utilizes catalysts which include tin, tungsten, or gold compounds as active ingredients. Depending on the type of catalysis process used, trace amounts of such minerals may exist in some of our finished products.

We understand staff of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) has previously issued oral guidance that conflict mineral compounds are not subject to reporting under the conflict mineral rules. However, in the absence of affirmative written SEC guidance on this point ExxonMobil has conducted in good faith a reasonable country of origin inquiry regarding the conflict minerals described above for 2023. Such inquiry is reasonably designed to determine whether any of these minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (the “covered countries") or are from recycled or scrap sources.

The tin, tungsten, or gold catalysts used by ExxonMobil in 2023 were purchased from third party suppliers. ExxonMobil’s country of origin inquiry includes obtaining from each of these suppliers for catalysts containing tin, tungsten, or gold compounds an annual written declaration in the form of the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) promulgated by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (“RMI”). Our contracts with each of these catalyst suppliers also require the suppliers to have and maintain procedures reasonably designed to ensure that all conflict minerals necessary to the functionality of products manufactured by the supplier or contracted by the supplier to be manufactured that are sold to ExxonMobil will be conflict free.

With respect to products we manufactured or contracted to manufacture in 2023, we have obtained completed CMRT declarations from each of our seven third party suppliers of catalysts containing tin, tungsten, or gold compounds.

All applicable suppliers certified that the gold used in their catalysts did not originate in the covered countries. Based on these inquiries, we conclude that, with respect to catalysts containing gold compounds which were used in the manufacture of products by ExxonMobil in 2023, such minerals did not originate in the covered countries.

Three of seven suppliers certified that the tin or tungsten used in their catalysts did not originate in the covered countries. Based on these inquiries, we conclude that, with respect to catalysts containing tin or tungsten compounds from these suppliers which were used in the manufacture of products by ExxonMobil in 2023, such minerals did not originate in the covered countries.

Four suppliers indicated in their CMRT declarations that some of the smelters in their respective supply chains source tin and/or tungsten from the covered countries (the “covered country declarations”). All four of the covered country declarations were provided on a company basis rather than a product basis so it is not known with certainty that minerals from the covered countries were actually used to produce catalysts sold to ExxonMobil. Covered country declarations represented that any covered country smelters or refiners used in the supplier’s supply chain in 2023 were “conformant” within the meaning of the RMI standards. Under RMI definitions, “conformant” means smelters and refiners that have successfully completed an assessment against the applicable Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (“RMAP”) or an equivalent cross-recognized assessment. RMAP includes Supply Chain Transparency Audit Protocols for tin or tungsten, as applicable, under which a “conformant” smelter must have completed a RMAP conformance audit conducted by an independent third-party auditor.

Based on the representations made in the covered country declarations regarding the supply chains upstream of ExxonMobil’s direct catalyst suppliers, together with information provided in further discussions with certain of these

suppliers and information available on the RMI website, we do not believe further diligence regarding these supply chains is necessary on ExxonMobil’s part.
