Climate change is a global challenge that requires government, business leaders and civil society to work together on cost-effective policy responses that recognize the vital role safe, affordable and reliable energy plays in ensuring human welfare, economic growth and security.
Oil and gas are essential to meet the world’s growing energy demand, and we are committed to developing these resources in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner. Our environment, health, safety and social responsibility strategy incorporates climate change into our risk management process and addresses actions we can undertake to control and reduce our carbon footprint.
Hess will continue to take cost-effective, appropriate steps to monitor, measure and reduce emissions through the following actions:
- Setting targets to reduce the carbon intensity of our operations
- Accounting for the cost of carbon in significant new investments
- Applying innovation and efficiency to reduce energy use, waste and emissions across our operations
