Hess Tops List of U.S. Energy Producers in 2014 Green Rankings

Stock quotes in this article: HES

Hess Corporation (NYSE:HES) today announced it has been ranked No. 1 among the greenest U.S. energy producers according to the just-released “2014 Newsweek (magazine) Green Rankings” of the largest 500 companies in the world ( http://www.newsweek.com/green/americas-greenest-companies-2014).

The rankings, now in their sixth year, evaluate the 500 largest publicly-traded companies as of December 31, 2013, by market capitalization in the United States (the U.S. 500) and the 500 largest publicly-traded companies globally (the Global 500) on corporate sustainability and environmental impact.

“We are committed to being responsible stewards in the communities where we work all over the world,” said Hess CEO John Hess. “Sustainable business practices are essential to ensuring our license to operate, managing risks, operating efficiently and developing growth opportunities. This recognition is a source of pride for all our employees and contractors who work tirelessly to uphold the Hess Values,” he said.

The magazine’s “Green Rankings” are based on eight performance indicators, including:

  • Combined Energy Productivity Score (revenue/total energy consumption)
  • Combined Greenhouse Gas Productivity (revenue/total Greenhouse Gas emissions)
  • Combined Water Productivity (revenue/total water use)
  • Combined Waste Productivity (revenue/total waste generated, minus total waste recycled)
  • Reputation
  • Sustainability Pay Link (a relationship between the pay of the senior executive team and the company’s achievement of environmental performance targets)
  • Sustainability Board Committee (the existence of a committee at the Board of Directors level whose mandate is related to the sustainability of the company)
  • Audited Environmental Metrics

The rankings are the result of a “rigorous, peer-reviewed research process, including both quantitative and qualitative data from some of the world’s leading environmental research organizations,” Newsweek stated.

Hess’ rank among the world’s greenest companies in all measured sectors (from Capital Goods to Vehicles and Components) is No. 108.
