Morrow Sodali’s Andrea Di Segni, Senior Managing Director, will be speaking at the Plenary 6: "Levelling the playing field with harmonized remuneration disclosure", where he will shed light on the implications of new Guidelines by the European Commission on the standardized presentation of the remuneration reports across Europe.
Investors are calling for more information around the process for remuneration setting as well as the rationale for individual awards. Long-term incentive plans have become ever more complicated, often combined with claw back arrangements, net holding requirements and performance-based deferrals of cash bonuses. This is coupled with a lack of clear alignment with sustainability related key performance indicators to demonstrate progress towards achieving objectives such as net-zero emission targets.
To what extent are Remuneration Committees fit for purpose in the 21st century? What do we expect to see in the new wave of corporate remuneration reporting from March 2023?
