G3: Executive Compensation
Linking Employee Compensation with Environmental Performance at Intel
Since 2008, Intel has linked the variable compensation package of each of its employees, including executives, to the company's achievement of environmental sustainability metrics in three areas: energy efficiency of products, reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy use, and improvements in its reputation as an environmental leader. In the four years since this program started, Intel has reduced energy use by 8 percent and its GHG emissions by 23 percent.
In this video, Suzanne Fallender, Director of CSR Strategy and Communications at Intel, talks about the importance of tying employee and executive compensation to specific environmental performance goals as a way to engage employees on sustainability issues.
