Royal Dutch Shell is developing a new compensation policy that will link its decarbonization efforts to the compensation provided to its top executives.  These efforts address many considerations:

  • From a shareholder perspective, aligning executive and shareholder interest with the Company’s mission, as well as industry concerns and regulatory compliance;
  • From an environmental standpoint, addressing what’s important in maintaining sound practices that make progress towards addressing global warming;
  • From an overall public perspective, where the Company continues to address social concerns that help to make it a good corporate citizen.

Appropriate performance measures continue to be a focal point for Boards and Compensation Committees as shareholders and the public put pressure on aligning performance and pay.
