Reporting Accurate and Reliable Performance Data That Is Independently Assured
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 2017 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.
