Boundaries for Material Issues and GRI G4 Issue Map

The 16 issues listed in the table below are those that both emerged as top issues from our most recent materiality assessment survey and mapped to Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 reporting criteria. The table provides a cross-reference with the relevant G4 categories for each issue and identifies the boundary for each issue in our 2016 Sustainability Report.

Overall, our material issues include environmental, social and governance concerns reflecting diverse external stakeholder priorities and Hess’ operational and regulatory risk focus. Climate change, which has been a focus of our environment, health, safety and social responsibility strategy to date, was one of the top five issues identified in our survey.
