1.2 Embedding ESG Metrics into Bonus and Long-Term Incentives 

ESG metrics or performance measures are indicators of a company's performance on environmental, social, and governance issues and are often used to assess a company's operating performance and risk.

This panel discussion will examine Anglo American and WPP's approaches to embedding ESG metrics in their executive plans, exploring how each company developed its strategy on ESG and how it chose which elements of the ESG strategy to incorporate into pay.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to practically incorporate ESG performance conditions into bonuses and long term incentives.
  • What the investor and regulatory expectations are in the UK and Europe.
  • How the UK approach differs in the US and Asia.
  • Alternatives to incorporating ESG metrics.
  • How to manage pitfalls.
