The remuneration policy for the Board of Management proposed by the Supervisory Board was approved at the General Shareholders’ Meeting on 20 May 2005. The remuneration of the Board of Management is set by the Supervisory Board on the recommendation of the Remuneration Committee.
The remuneration report for 2013 will be published on Eneco Holding N.V.'s website.
The remuneration of the members of the Board of Management consists of a fixed salary and a variable salary. The variable salary amounts to a maximum of 20% of the total salary. In 2013, the variable salary was also dependent on performance criteria including socially-relevant results. The three main criteria for the variable salary were financial performance (including EBIT, credit rating ratios and cost savings), safety (LTIR) and the implementation the sustainability strategy (including alignment of customers and employees as expressed in customer and employee satisfaction and sustainable purchases and investments).
The pension entitlements of the members of the Board of Management come under Eneco Holding N.V.'s standard pension plan.
The current employment contracts with the members of the Board of Management are for an unlimited time with a period of notice for the company of four months. Each member of the Board of Management has been appointed for a period of four years. Messrs Rameau, Dubbeld and Van der Linden are entitled to payment of 12 months salary and Mr de Haas to 24 months salary if dismissed by the company.
The Budget Agreement 2013 Tax Measures Implementation Act (Wet uitwerking fiscale maatregelen Begrotingsakkoord 2013) came into effect in 2012. The ‘one-off’ crisis levy has been repeated, meaning that employers must again pay a levy of 16% of the salary from current employment (including any bonuses) that they paid their employees during 2013, insofar as such salary exceeded € 150,000. Eneco is applying the interpretation of the Dutch Accounting Standards Board that the crisis levy is not part of the directors’ remuneration as it does not include an element of remuneration. The crisis levy for the directors charged to the result in 2013 was € 0.18 million.
