Upcoming Program


Growing recognition that boards have a responsibility to oversee “EESG” (Employee, Environmental, Social, and Governance) risks and opportunities has increased pressure to create greater alignment and accountability. Shareholder demands have included integrating EESG factors into executive compensation by tying it to corporate climate goals or improvements in gender or racial diversity and putting company-wide pay equity on the compensation committee’s agenda.

In this interactive conversation, the Salzburg Global Corporate Governance Forum will explore the growing pressure to align executive compensation with delivering on corporate EESG priorities. We will be joined by leaders in the field of executive compensation, key stakeholders initiating and supporting proxy proposals linking EESG to compensation, and directors and executives from companies that have already started to factor EESG into their compensation schemes.

Time: 90 minutes per session. Participants are welcome to join either session or both as convenient per their Time Zone.

Discussions will take place in plenary and small breakout groups. As always, we will adhere to the Chatham Rule in order to allow for candid and open exchange of ideas.

Participant profile

The Forum is primarily intended to benefit directors and principals of corporations organized and operating in various jurisdictions who want an off-the-record opportunity to explore and address some of the greatest challenges facing them as directors in the coming decade. The aim is to help them return to their boardrooms with new ideas which they can implement, and with new partnerships and insights, so that they can become thought leaders and change makers for the coming decades.

Within the overall group, directors are supplemented by additional voices representing other constituents, based on their relevance to the topic and ability to present constructive but divergent views. These include senior managers; judges, regulators, and policymakers; lawyers; thought leaders and academics; investors; and representatives of key civil society interest groups. 

Since its inauguration in 2015, the Forum has welcomed participants from 25 countries: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Greece, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, The Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK, and the USA.
