How We Operate

We strive to meet the highest standards of corporate citizenship, contribute to the sustainability of the communities where we operate and deliver long-term value to our shareholders.

The six core Hess Values support our aim to be the most trusted energy partner. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (Code of Conduct), Social Responsibility Policy, Human Rights Policy, Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) Policy, and Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption (ABAC) Policy build on our Values to define internal expectations for sustainable management and performance at Hess.

We recently completed a project to review and update our environment, health, safety and social responsibility (EHS & SR) strategy to fully align with our transition to an exploration and production company and our commitment to operating as a trusted energy partner. It is our expectation that refreshing our strategy will strengthen our license to operate, reduce risk and enhance both our operational effectiveness and our management of stakeholder expectations.
