Hess Corporation has earned a place as the No. 1 oil and gas company on Corporate Responsibility magazine’s prestigious list of 100 Best Corporate Citizens of 2019. The annual list recognizes public companies across the United States for outstanding environmental, social and governance (ESG) transparency and performance.

Hess is ranked No. 30 on the 2019 list, moving up 10 places from last year’s ranking. The company has been named to the list each of the last 12 years.

The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List ranks the Russell 1000 Index of publicly held U.S. companies based on an independent assessment by ISS-ESG (a research arm of Institutional Shareholder Services) of 134 total corporate disclosure and performance factors in seven categories: climate change, employee relations, environment, finance, governance, human rights, and stakeholders and society.
