Compensation Practices for a Sustainable Future

Executive compensation practices are scrutinized for their alignment with business strategy and financial results. Increasingly, discussions about how to align compensation with the company’s ESG performance are gaining more prominence. For investors keen to incentivize corporate behavior to improve ESG outcomes, key questions arise: How can we identify the most relevant ESG issues? What factors should we consider to develop meaningful targets? Is it sufficient to focus on the CEO’s pay, or do we need to take a broader, company-wide view on compensation? This session will explore best practices in designing compensation practices to create long-term sustainable value and drive action towards solving the world’s major societal challenges.
