Hess Sustainability Reports


Hess aims to be in the top quartile in our sector for the quality of our disclosures on our sustainability performance and programs.


Our 2021 Sustainability Report was prepared in accordance with the Core option of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards. It was also informed by the Sustainability Reporting Guidance for the Oil and Gas Industry developed by IPIECA, the American Petroleum Institute and the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers; the United Nations Global Compact’s (UNGC’s) Ten Principles; oil and gas industry metrics from the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB); the World Economic Forum (WEF) Stakeholder Capitalism Core Metrics; recommendations from the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures; and key environmental, social and governance ratings.

2021 Global Reporting Initiative Content Index

The GRI Content Index refers to the GRI Standards and G4 Oil and Gas Sector Supplement indicators, with cross reference to the UNGC’s Ten Principles, IPIECA sector-specific guidelines, SASB oil and gas industry metrics and WEF Stakeholder Capitalism Core Metrics. The index includes all indicators required for a GRI Standards Core report, as well as a number of additional indicators for which we are able to provide supporting information.
