The Board of Directors of Hess Corporation is responsible for oversight of the business and affairs of the company in the best interest of our stockholders, with due regard to our customers, the communities in which we operate and our employees. Based on the recommendation of the Board’s Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee, the Board has developed and adopted a set of corporate governance principles to provide guidance to the Board and management in carrying out these responsibilities, to promote the effective functioning of the Board and its committees and to set forth a common set of expectations as to how the Board should perform its functions.

The Board has three principal committees: the Audit Committee, the Compensation and Management Development Committee and the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee. Each committee has a written charter that sets forth its purpose and responsibilities. Under the Audit Committee, there is an Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) subcommittee that focuses on these matters. Additional information on the Board, its charters, requirements for Related Party Transactions and contact information is available at hess.com/investors.

Hess’ Global Compliance team oversees a worldwide compliance program for the company.

The purpose of the Code is to advise individuals of their obligations to comply with applicable law, as well as the fundamental principles of business ethics to which they must adhere, such as avoidance of conflicts of interests or misuse of corporate opportunities and confidential information.

The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors has oversight responsibility for the integrity of the company’s financial statements, financial reporting practices, systems of internal accounting, financial and disclosure controls, internal audit function, retention and oversight of independent auditors and compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. The Audit Committee also provides oversight and makes recommendations to the full Board with respect to Hess Corporation’s policies, positions and systems for environment, health, safety and social responsibility (EHS & SR), compliance and risk management. Under the Audit Committee is the EHS Subcommittee, which focuses on these areas.

The company has developed an enterprise risk program, which includes consideration of EHS & SR risks, to strengthen the consistency of risk consideration in making business decisions. The full Board has oversight of Hess’ risk management policies with an emphasis on understanding the key enterprise risks affecting the company’s business and the ways in which the company attempts to prudently mitigate such risks. The Chief Risk Officer reviews the enterprise risk program with the Board annually. 

See page p. 11 of our 2017 SR for a general description of our governance related to EHS & SR issues and page 12 for our approach to enterprise risk management.

Hess supports revenue transparency through participation in the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), a voluntary, multi-stakeholder initiative that includes oil and mining companies, governments, civil society groups and international nongovernmental organizations and investors. As a Supporting Company of the EITI since 2004, Hess endorses the initiative’s objective to improve governance through transparency of payments to governments.  

In countries that have joined the EITI, where we have equity interests but are not the operator, we comply with the disclosure practices of the operating company as well as country laws and regulations.

We support the EITI’s efforts to attract more countries to the initiative. Hess welcomes the EITI’s efforts to conduct outreach in Latin America, including Guyana and Suriname, where Hess has entered into joint ventures in four different offshore blocks (two in Guyana and two in Suriname). Hess has been and continues to be supportive of all countries where it conducts business to join the EITI. Moreover, Hess was pleased that the EITI Board approved both Guyana's and Suriname’s candidature applications in 2017. We have also supported implementation of the EITI in Equatorial Guinea (EG) and have participated in meetings with the World Bank and International Monetary Fund to discuss their work with EG on transparency initiatives.

At all significant locations of operations, which Hess defines as 100 or more employees, standard entry-level wages are higher than local minimum wages. To gauge the competitiveness and fairness of our compensation, we benchmark Hess against industry peers.

Hess has analyzed all business units, including its core exploration and production business, for risks related to corruption. Hess’ Global Compliance team proactively assesses country-level risks related to corruption based on internal risk criteria. The Corporate Audit function systematically conducts anti‐corruption audits to determine potential exposure to corruption risk. Audits are conducted annually in certain countries where Hess operates, and every two to three years in other countries as determined by internal risk criteria and external benchmarks (e.g., Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index). 

The types of risks identified through these activities have included those related to third-party due diligence and potential third-party misconduct, conflicts of interest and significant commercial transactions in high risk countries.

We are subject to energy-related policies or regulations at various assets within our organization. For example, Hess’s Denmark operations are subject to the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EUETS). Under Phase lll of this program, Hess makes annual purchases of emissions allowances to account for our verified greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Another example is in North Dakota, where the North Dakota Industrial Commission (NDIC) has worked closely with the North Dakota Petroleum Council’s Flaring Task Force to develop policies that will increase wellhead gas capture to reduce flaring of associated gas from oil and gas development in the Bakken. As part of this approach, NDIC Order #24665 mandates that operators capture 91 percent of produced gas by November 2020, with interim flaring targets in advance of this date.

Our approach for screening new suppliers, which includes risk reviews for EHS performance and programs where appropriate, is described on page 15 the 2017 SR. Our Contractor Management Standard defines internal monitoring requirements for the EHS performance of our suppliers on an ongoing basis, at various points in the contract life cycle. Monitoring may include assessments, inspections, performance metrics, audits or safety meetings as needed based on the scope of work. Findings that result from these reviews are documented through our supplier management and incident management software, and the associated actions are tracked to closure. The contractors’ performance records are maintained and factored into decision-making when the contractor is being considered for future work.

We have extensive safety programs that involve both management and employees. These are not typically in the format of joint worker–management safety committees, with the exception of locations where applicable laws and regulations require this arrangement. At year-end 2017 less than 3 percent of employees were represented by collective bargaining agreements. As such, workforce participation in these committees is not a metric that we measure.

Our standard contract clauses include requirements with respect to ethical business practices, human rights, social responsibility, business integrity, search and seizure, quality and environment, health and safety. See also description for 308-2 above for our approach to ongoing monitoring of suppliers.

Hess introduced new security and human rights-related contract clauses in 2011, and new contracts include these clauses. A review within the last three years of domestic and international contracts determined that overall, approximately 95 percent of current supplier contracts include these human rights and social responsibility clauses.

Hess has analyzed all business units, including its core exploration and production business, for risks related to corruption. Hess’ global compliance team proactively assesses country-level risks related to corruption based on internal risk criteria. The corporate audit function systematically conducts anti-corruption audits to determinepotential exposure to corruption risk. Annual audits are conducted in certain countries where Hess operates, and every two to three years in other countries as determined by internal risk criteria and external benchmarks (e.g., Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index).

Comments
We comply with applicable product and service labeling requirements. Our products have globally harmonized Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) that provide information on chemical, physical and toxicological characteristics, safe handling, and spill and emergency response measures. These are available at hess.com/sustainability.

The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) is an internationally accepted system. The GHS was designed to replace all the diverse classification systems and present one universal standard, which all countries should follow. We completed employee training on the new GHS label elements and SDS format, and have updated existing Hess SDSs to reflect the new format.
