Addressing sustainability issues is becoming more and more important for certain industries. Not only governments but also stock exchanges, major global investors as well as traditional banks, pension funds, and proxy advisors are increasingly pressuring companies to review their efforts in environmental, social and governance (ESG) topics. As a result, more and more companies are driving their sustainability agenda by integrating ESG criteria into their compensation strategy and, in particular, in their executive compensation systems.

Want to know more? Listen to the recording of ISSP's June 28th webinar where Claudia Wuerstle of HCM International presented on: Linking Executive Compensation to Sustainability & ESG Performance. Claudia described current market practices on the usage of specific ESG criteria in executive compensation systems and discuss different alternatives to reflect such criteria in "variable pay", the portion of employee compensation that is based on performance. Also, check the list of recordings available from previous webinars for more interesting topics.

ISSP, together with HCM International is doing a survey regarding the integration of ESG in variable compensation. Click here to participate in the survey. All survey participants will be provided with a copy of the report.
