2021 ESG & Incentives Reports Evolution towards prominent ESG structures into plan design

As the use of ESG metrics in incentive plans continues to grow, we see a diverse set of models by which
companies incorporate these metrics. As with many ‘non-financial’ metrics, the use of ESG metrics within a ‘scorecard’ is a common approach, although this is certainly not the only solution.

We anticipate the evolution toward incorporating more weighted and prominent ESG structures into plan design to continue to grow in the coming years.

In this report, we analyze the reported design approach to incorporating ESG metrics into incentives within the S&P 500.
