Hess Named to Dow Jones Sustainability Index North America for Seventh Consecutive Year

  • Hess named to DJSI seven consecutive years
  • Hess named to Dow Jones Sustainability Index

Hess has earned a place on the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) North America for the seventh consecutive year. The index, which recognizes public companies for outstanding performance across economic, environmental and social factors, is used as a reference by shareholders who consider sustainability when making investment decisions. Only the most sustainable companies in each industry are considered each year for index membership.

Hess is one of three U.S. oil and gas producers, and the only independent, named among six companies in the Energy industry group.

“Hess is steadfastly 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,” said Alex Sagebien, VP, Environment, Health and Safety, Hess Corporation. “We are proud of our sustainability practices because they create value for our shareholders and provide opportunities to continuously improve business performance.”

The DJSI, introduced in 1999, is produced by Dow Jones in collaboration with RobecoSAM, a Swiss investment company founded on the belief that integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors into traditional financial analysis can generate long-term value. The company has compiled one of the world’s most comprehensive databases of financially material sustainability information.

Hess’ Corporate Sustainability Report describe the company’s sustainability strategy and environmental, social and governance programs. The 2015 report is available at:
