We publicly report sustainability metrics in accordance with the Core option of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards. Our internal information systems promote the centralized collection of data from Hess-operated and joint venture assets around the world.
In order to evaluate accuracy and reliability, we conduct quality assurance/ quality control reviews and validation of both aggregated and facility-level data. Our 2019 Sustainability Report, including our sustainability data and self-declared GRI “in accordance” status, was assured by ERM Certification and Verification Services. This external review helps to ensure consistent and objective data collection and reporting of our sustainability performance.
