How Do We Have a More Productive Compensation Committee Conversation about ESG?
Directors need a framework in order to think through their company’s unique position relative to ESG factors.
Prevalence data outlining the inclusion of ESG goals in incentive plans provide some interesting historical context. However, at this point in the broad ESG conversation, boards also require more practical information. Directors need a framework in order to think through their company’s unique position relative to industry-applicable ESG factors, evaluate their company’s readiness, and incorporate in a compensation plan design—if that is the right answer in their circumstance.
In this webcast with Pearl Meyer and the NACD, we take a case study approach to outline:
- How boards are making critical, step-by-step decisions about the environmental, social, and governance components that are important to them;
- How a select few are altering their incentives; and
- The benefits of communicating the company’s approach to ESG, no matter your position on incentive-driven goals.
