Hess Corporation has been recognized for climate change stewardship, achieving leadership status in CDP’s 2017 Global Climate Analysis. Hess is the only US energy company to achieve leadership status. This is the ninth consecutive year that Hess earned this recognition from CDP, an international nonprofit group seeking to drive sustainable economies.
Scores are based upon a company’s disclosure practices and management of climate change risks.
“CDP’s rating recognizes our leadership and transparency in addressing climate-related risks and opportunities,” said Alex Sagebien, vice president, environmental, health and safety, for Hess. “Hess is committed to being a trusted energy partner that helps meet the world’s growing energy needs in a safe, environmentally responsible, socially sensitive, and profitable way.”
Earlier this year, for the eighth consecutive time, Hess was included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) North America, which highlights public companies for outstanding performance across economic, environmental, and social factors. Hess was also included in Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens for the 10th consecutive year and, for the third time, was named as one of the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations by the Toronto-based media and investment research firm Corporate Knights.
