In CDP's Climate Change Scores for 2021, Hess Corporation was recognised for climate change stewardship. Hess has held Leadership status with CDP, an international nonprofit organisation that operates a global environmental disclosure system, for 13 years in a row. Hess is one of only two US oil and gas producers to achieve Leadership status this year, scoring significantly higher than both the oil and gas extraction and production sector average and the overall North American regional average.

“CDP’s rating recognizes our leadership in climate related performance and disclosure,”

said Alex Sagebien, Vice President, Environmental, Health and Safety.

“Hess will continue to be guided by our longstanding commitment to sustainability as we help to meet the world’s growing need for affordable, reliable and cleaner energy.”

CDP scores are determined by a company's climate-related governance, disclosure practises, and risk management.

Furthermore, Hess was included in Newsweek's third annual ranking of America's Most Responsible Companies. Hess is the highest ranked oil and gas producer among the 500 companies on the 2022 list. The ranking is based on a research firm's analysis of 2,000 public companies with US headquarters using an independent survey and publicly available key performance indicators for environmental, social, and corporate governance. The full list and methodology can be found here.
