Join this PRI webinar to learn more about a sector specific analysis of company practice in the Extractives and Utilities sectors, and discuss how investors can engage to improve practices and advance meaningful disclosure. 

The inclusion of appropriate ESG issues within executive management goals and incentive schemes can be an important factor in the creation and protection of long-term shareholder value. Executive pay should be aligned with the company’s long-term strategy and performance. Integrating key ESG metrics into pay seems to be a natural progression towards holding executive management to account for sustainable delivery of business goals and value.

This webinar provides PRI signatories with the opportunity to learn more about sector specific analysis of company practices in the Extractives and Utilities sectors. The research focuses on companies in North America, Europe and Australia and follows up from the publication of a PRI document on the integration of ESG issues into executive pay. Participants will discuss the research findings and an upcoming opportunity to join a collaborative engagement with companies in the two sectors, to improve practices and disclosure.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Meryam Omi, Head of Sustainability, Legal & General Investment Management
  • Scott Zdrazil, First Vice President, Director of Corporate Governance, Amalgamated Bank
  • Gary L. Hewitt, Managing Director, Head of Research, GMI Ratings
