Subscribe to our e-newsletter to make sure you stay up-to-date with our latest work. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for daily updates and insights into what’s going on inside the EU's 'Brussels bubble'. CEO also has accounts on Flickr, YouTube and Vimeo.

And if you like what you see, why not recommend friends and colleagues to follow us?


Our independence is vitally important to our work, which is why CEO doesn’t accept any funding from the EU, governments or companies. We rely on grants and donations from engaged individuals. Please consider making a donation to support our work. Your funds, big or small, can help us increase our work exposing lobbying scandals and boost our campaigning against the capture of EU policy-making by big business.

Guided tours

When the weather allows it, CEO organises guided lobby tours of the EU quarter. We walk visitors around key lobby landmarks in the capital and explain how corporations manage to influence the EU institutions. Lobby tour dates are announced in our newsletter, on social media and here on the site. If you wish for us to arrange a guided tour for groups, please use the 'lobbytour' form and fill it with the details (group size, profile, preferred language, possible dates,...) and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

A new guide to lobbying and greenwashing around the UN climate talks

'Lobby Planet Paris'' maps the big corporations, lobby groups and trade associations that are trying hard to capture the climate talks

Monsanto and the pesticide industry breathed a collective sigh of relief on 12 November 2015. The findings of an investigation into the toxicity of glyphosate by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and EU Member States were in stark contradiction to the March 2015 conclusion by the International Agency for Research against Cancer (IARC), a body of the World Health Organization (WHO), that this agricultural herbicide was probably causing cancer to humans. If validated, this conclusion could cause a partial ban of glyphosate in the EU.

Join AITEC, ATTAC France, Corporate Europe Observatory, l'Observatoire des Multinationales and the Transnational Institute for a guided 'lobby tour' of Paris's climate criminals, with a special focus on the ongoing UN climate talks in the French capital, COP21.
