ISS has launched its 2021 Annual Policy Survey.  Generally, the survey is the first step in ISS’ annual benchmark policy development process.

This year, the survey is structured to include questions related to ISS policy guidance released earlier this year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, AGM formats, and stakeholder expectations regarding compensation and adjustments to incentives.  Additionally, it also elicits feedback on a global level related to climate change risk, sustainable development goals, auditors and audit committees, and racial and ethnic diversity on corporate boards. U.S. topics include independent board chairs.

In addition to the annual survey, ISS will continue to conduct a variety of regionally-based, topic-specific roundtable discussions gathering broad input from investors, company directors and others that will also factor into the update and development of ISS’ benchmark policy guidelines for 2021.
