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

Donate

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 rainy weather in Brussels 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 in our events section. Tours for groups can also sometimes be arranged – contact us (ceo@corporateeurope.org) with the details (group size, profile, preferred language and possible dates) and we will get back to you.

Tips

If you have some information you want to share with us, you can write to ceo@corporateeurope.org.

A new draft EU directive currently looked at by the European Parliament wants to protect companies' "trade secrets", but uses definitions so large and exceptions so weak that it could seriously endanger the work of journalists, whistle-blowers, unionists and researchers as well as severely limiting corporate accountability. We publish a joint statement together with several other groups for the directive to be radically amended.
In the face of a disastrous Lima Outcome for local communities, their environments and the climate, many of the climate justice groups attending COP20 released a joint statement in response to what countries had agreed to, as well setting our own agenda.
The UN climate talks in Lima, COP20, have had the pervasive influence of business all over them. Yet despite this, business is still not happy with the influence it has on the talks and wants a greater role.
As the UN climate talks – COP20 – wrap up in Lima, CEO took part in a press conference to reflect on what two weeks of negotiations mean for climate justice and the road to Paris. Organised by the Institute of Climate Action and Theory, CEO was joined by with Michael Dorsey (board member of Sierra Club) and Jagoda Munic (Chair of Friends of the Earth International).
