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

Hess has earned a place on the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Index North America for the ninth 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 four U.S. oil and gas producers in the Energy industry group listed on the North America Index.

Earlier this year, Hess earned Industry Mover distinction for being in the top 15 percent of its industry and achieving the largest proportional improvement in sustainability performance compared to the previous year. This distinction qualifies Hess for inclusion in the 2018 edition of RobecoSAM’s Sustainability Yearbook which recognizes companies for “outstanding corporate sustainability achievements.”
