WNT

On 1 January 2013, the Public and Semi-Public Sector Executives' Pay (Standards) Act (Wet normering bezoldiging topfunctionarissen publieke en semipublieke sector / WNT) entered into force. This new act contains rules for the maximum remuneration for board members and senior executives in the public and semi-public sectors. The WNT limit is set annually by ministerial order.

WNT reporting

The WNT is applicable to network operator Liander N.V. , which is required to report on the remuneration of Management Board members and senior executives. In addition, transparency is requested on the remuneration of other employees, including temporary hires, and termination payments exceeding a set limit in the reporting year. The separate annual report of the network operator, which is to be published in the second quarter of 2017, will contain disclosures on the WNT requirements applicable to the network operator.

Remuneration of the Management Board and the Supervisory Board

The Remuneration Report sets out the remuneration policy, its implementation and the remuneration of the Management Board and the Supervisory Board (key management). These three sections can be found in article 'Corporate governance' of the 2016 Annual Report. The remuneration of the members of the Management Board is disclosed in the following table.

  • 1This includes the difference between the accrued entitlement as at year-end 2015 and the actual payment in 2016. For Mr Molengraaf, this is an amount of €7,000 and for Mr Van Lieshout €6,000.

The fixed salary concerns the actual payment per annum, without amounts accrued for other remuneration elements. The short-term variable remuneration element was discontinued at the end of 2015. The long-term variable remuneration concerns a payment that has been earned over a period of three years. As at year-end 2016, the long-term variable remuneration figure concerns the period 2014–2016. The award of a long-term variable remuneration element has now also been discontinued, with the long-term variable remuneration for the period 2014–2016 being the last award and payment to be made. For details of the long-term variable remuneration payable, see the Remuneration Report.
