As organizations acknowledge the need to transition to low-carbon or net zero, investors and board members expect management to develop the strategy to mitigate business’ risk exposure to climate change, and to capture opportunities in climate transition. But how can organizations incentivize top executives to drive their climate transition strategy?
Willis Towers Watson has been collaborating with the Climate Governance Initiative, a global network which helps boards incorporate a climate lens into all relevant aspects of their oversight functions, by applying the World Economic Forum’s Principles for Effective Climate Governance. Together, we have developed a guidebook on how to link climate priorities with executive compensation. The guidebook presents our research findings, views of non-executive directors and investors and our latest thinking on how to incorporate climate metrics across a number of key industries.
Join this session to get a preview of our research findings and guidebook, which will be launched on Thursday, 11 November.
