Exxon names Susan Avery to its board of directors

An environmentalist, Susan Avera is the former head of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution who is also a former professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

In a significant development that potentially bodes well for the environment, the world’s largest publicly traded oil producer has named an environmentalist to its board of directors.

Exxon has named Susan Avery, a former head of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution who is also a former professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, to its Board of Directors effective from February 1.

The move follows repeated attacks in the past by environmental groups that the company hid research on climate change from the public, something that the Donald Trump administration is currently attempting.
