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.
