Unilever CEO Rewarded For Progress Toward Sustainability Goals

March 7, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
According to Unilever’s annual report to stockholders, CEO Paul Polman was given a $722,230 bonus for work that led to the creation of the company's sustainable-living plan, which sets targets for reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, water use, and waste creation. A Unilever spokeswoman said the bonus was calculated using a “personal performance multiplier” that took into account  Polman’s job performance, leadership, delivery of sustainability goals, and “overall contribution” to the plan, which calls for halving the environmental footprint by 2020 and sustainably sourcing all agricultural raw materials.
