Exxon Mobil joins exodus of firms from lobbying group ALEC | Reuters

This is a very important step forward, and we are most grateful to Walden Asset Management and the other investors who worked with great patience and integrity to communicate with ExxonMobil about these issues.

Exxon Mobil said on Thursday it ended its association with the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conservative political group that several other prominent U.S. corporations have left in recent years…Ben Ratner, a senior director at the Environmental Defense Fund, a non-profit group focused on environmental issues, called Exxon’s departure “an important statement,” noting the oil company recently joined BP, Shell and others supporting steps to reduce natural gas emissions from their operations.
