Hess has earned a place on the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) North America for the tenth 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.

“Being recognized by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the tenth consecutive year is an honor and reflects our company’s continued commitment to sustainability,” said Alex Sagebien, Vice President, Environment, Health and Safety, Hess Corporation.

Earlier this year, Hess was also recognized on the FTSE4Good Index Series for strong environmental, social and governance practices. Created by the global index provider FTSE Russell, the FTSE4Good Index Series is designed to objectively measure the performance of companies that meet globally recognized corporate responsibility standards.

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’ Sustainability Report describes the company’s sustainability strategy and performance on environmental, social and governance programs and initiatives. The 2018 report is available at: www.hess.com/sustainability/sustainability-reports.

Hess Corporation is a leading global independent energy company engaged in the exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas. More information about the company is available at www.hess.com.
