Hess Corporation (NYSE:HES) today announced it has been ranked first among U.S. energy companies on the 2015 Newsweek Green Rankings – U.S. 500, one of the world’s most recognized assessments of corporate environmental performance.

The rankings reflect the sustainability and environmental impact of the 500 largest publicly traded companies in the United States by market capitalization. Hess ranked No. 63 across all sectors.

“We are proud of the progress we are making in environmental performance and committed to building a sustainable enterprise that will make a positive difference for our stakeholders and the world around us,” said John Hess, Chief Executive Officer, Hess Corporation.

Based on research from Corporate Knights Capital, along with a “Green Revenue” score from HIP (Human Impact + Profit) Investor Inc., the 2015 ranking features eight indicators that are used to assess and measure environmental performance. The U.S. 500 full list and a detailed description of the methodology are available at http://www.newsweek.com/green-2015/top-green-companies-u.s.-2015.

In April, Hess was ranked first among oil and gas companies on Corporate Responsibility magazine’s prestigious list of 100 Best Corporate Citizens for 2015. In January, the company was the only U.S. oil and gas producer named to the 2015 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations list.
