Exxon appears to be hastening its shift to more sustainable energy solutions after Engine No.1, an activist investor group, won two seats on the company’s board last year.
Although we don’t expect the move to meaningfully drive Exxon’s stock in the near term, it should signal to investors that the company is getting more serious about cleaner energy after years of trailing behind the likes of BP and Royal Dutch Shell in the renewable energy business.
