Oil and gas companies reward executives for growing production despite climate pledges. 

“Low-carbon” business strategies conceal plans to promote gas.  

The energy transition is fundamentally shifting the way oil and gas companies operate; as demand falls for fossil fuels, traditional hydrocarbon business segments will become obsolete. Companies need to reckon with the transition, and fast.

Executives steer the course of company strategy and their compensation influences decisions Executive remuneration structures are based on strategic targets which determine the amount of compensation paid. Since individuals are inherently motivated by self-interest, management will strive to meet these targets to maximise their own returns. As such, remuneration targets will determine how effectively company strategy is executed. Management is still incentivised to grow hydrocarbon production.

Join us for a webinar discussing the latest Carbon Tracker research findings, with a discussion on remuneration trends in the Oil and Gas sector.
