Legend:
  • grey cell - member not present at the meeting
  • * - member has made the conflict of interest declaration to the UNFCCC secretariat
  • X - member declared a conflict of interest
  • number - member made a special statement with regard to conflict of interest (see below)
Special statements:

1. Lex de Jonge: In respect of a conflict of interest, I would like to reflect on the oath, in which I undertook to disclose “any interest in any matter under discussion before the Executive Board which may constitute a conflict of interest or which might be incompatible with the requirements of integrity and impartiality expected of a member of the Executive Board”.
In line with paragraph 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the Code of Conduct, I have therefore refrained, and will continue to refrain from:

- discussing projects in which either the Dutch DNA or any of my past and present professional affiliations are involved;

- presenting or discussing evidence before the Board of a project-specific nature, which is not apparent from the documents presented before the Board.


Lex de Jonge

2. Peer Stiansen: I deem, in my personal case, that a conflict of interest will be deemed to exist by virtue of:

a) financial or property interests;
b) business affiliations;
c) nationality or citizenship;
d) government affiliation;
e) professional affiliations and interests; and
f) employment, family or other indirect or apparent interests

I have therefore refrained, and will continue to refrain, from discussing projects which have obtained a letter of approval from the Norwegian DNA, or where I am aware that the Norwegian government has entered, or plans to enter, into a purchase agreement. I also limit my participation to general points on cases, issues and projects where I am aware that a Norwegian entity has a substantial economic interest.
