The 16 issues listed in the table below are those that emerged as top issues in our 2015 materiality assessment, mapped to the GRI Standards reporting criteria. Each of the material issues listed in the table below is considered to apply enterprisewide to assets operated by Hess Corporation and our subsidiaries unless otherwise noted. The table provides a cross-reference with the relevant GRI categories for each issue and identifies the boundary for each issue in our 2019 Sustainability Report.
Overall, our material issues include environmental, social and governance concerns reflecting diverse external stakeholder priorities and Hess’ operational and regulatory risk focus. Climate change, process safety and spills, community and stakeholder engagement, water management and regulatory compliance, which have been the focus of our EHS & SR strategy since at least 2015, have been confirmed as continued key issues for Hess in our latest materiality assessment completed in early 2020.
