Most corporations today claim to be purpose-led, putting people and the planet first. But the efforts of millions who join them are undermined by outdated financial incentives that reward CEOs to deliver short term gains at all costs.

Reward Value works with investors, universities and business to modernise executive pay as a catalyst for positive change.

Reward Value Foundation is a not-for-profit research initiative.
