ESGAUGE Releases Public Dataset of Russell 3000 Compensation Reductions in the COVID-19 Crisis

ESGAUGE released today a public online database tracking SEC Form 8-K filings by Russell 3000 companies that have chosen to reduce their executive and director compensation in response to the global health crisis caused by the COVID-19 virus.

The project is part of the new collaboration established by ESGAGE with the compensation consulting experts of Semler Brossy and New York-based business association The Conference Board. Companies can be searched by GICS business sector and industry, company size group, and pay reduction type. The database will be updated weekly as the crisis continues to unfold and other companies adopt similar decisions.
