Hess Corporation Earns Place on 2015 S&P 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index

  • Hess is a CDP Climate Disclosure Leader

Hess Corporation has been recognized as a leader among S&P 500 companies for climate change transparency, earning a position on the 2015 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) announced yesterday by CDP, an international non-profit group seeking to drive sustainable economies. Hess has been included in the CDLI for seven consecutive years and is one of only two energy companies to make the 2015 index.

Reported data is independently assessed against CDP’s scoring methodology and marked out of 100 for the quality of climate change-related information disclosed to investors and the global marketplace. Companies graded within the top 10 percent constitute the CDLI. Hess earned a score of 99. The complete list of companies on this year’s CDLI can be found at: https://www.cdp.net/CDPResults/CDP-USA-climate-change-report-2015.pdf.

Every year, on behalf of 822 investors who represent $95 trillion in assets, thousands of companies submit climate disclosures to CDP. Top scores indicate a high level of transparency, providing investors with a level of comfort to assess corporate accountability and preparedness for changing market demands and emissions regulation.

“We are proud to be included in the CDLI and recognized for our transparency in addressing climate-related risks and opportunities,” Alex Sagebien , Vice President, Environmental, Health and Safety. “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.”
