Corporate Governance

The Caterpillar board of directors has direct oversight of our climate and sustainability efforts. The Sustainability & other Public Policy Committee has explicit oversight for sustainability, social and other public policy matters, including those related to the environment, climate change, human rights and lobbying.

Management-level sustainability governance includes our chief executive officer (CEO), all executive officers, and the chief sustainability officer (CSO). The CSO reports directly to the CEO. ESG performance is incorporated into annual incentive plans for executives. Further information on the incentive plans is provided in the Proxy.
