ABSTRACT
The authors explore the link between executive compensation incentives and environmental performance for several large businesses within the U.S. Information about 207 companies was taken from the "1996 IRRC Corporate Environmental Profile," the annual publication of the Investor Responsibility Research Council, as well as other reported financial data. The study found that companies with environmental performance indicators already in place are most likely to tie executive compensation incentives with environmental performance.
