California Attorney General Rob Bonta said Thursday his office has issued a subpoena to Exxon Mobil Corp. XOM, +3.10% as part of the office’s investigation into the energy industry’s “role” in allegedly “causing and exacerbating the global plastics pollution crisis.” The attorney general was seeking “information relating to the company’s role in deceiving the public,” the office said. Exxon did not immediately return a request for comment. The shares rose more than 3% in Thursday trading.
