Risks and opportunities


Hess receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. Hess’ scope 1 and 2 emissions intensity is increasing, and its scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions reduction is still far below what is required by its 1.5°C pathway. With inadequate emissions reduction targets, the company is not on track to decrease its emissions intensity at a rate fast enough to align with its 1.5°C pathway. The company’s strategic and business model performance is also unlikely to improve, given that it has no significant plans for low-carbon business activities or strategic updates.
