Risks and Opportunities


Hess Corporation receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. Hess has set targets to reduce its scope 1 and 2 emissions for 2025 and 2050, but is projected to greatly exceed its 2022 to 2050 carbon budget. Progress being made towards Hess’ 2025 target is supported by the use of RECs (renewable energy certificates) and offsets. Hess’s transition plan lacks information on how it aims to meet its 2050 emissions reduction target, such as details of any low-carbon business models, supporting financial content or any commitments to phase out the use of fossil fuels.
