ESG Metrics in Canadian Executive Compensation

Canadian boards are increasingly incorporating ESG metrics into executive compensation-


A Hugessen Consulting Inc. survey of 53 Canadian corporate boards found that:

  • 23% currently incorporate ESG metrics into exec compensation

  • 32% plan to do so in the upcoming year

  • 19% plan to do so in the following year

  • 26% have no plans to do so

Notably, 28% of respondents represented small/micro-caps, which may help to explain why roughly that proportion of respondents have no plans to bring ESG factors into compensation at this time.
