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 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 in our events section. If you wish for us to arrange a guided tour for groups, please use the compulsory '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.

Tips

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

 

 

Polluters in Peru blog

There are daily meetings between the financial lobby and the Commission, and they’re mainly about issues crucial to society at large. Despite this, the public is only able to access piecemeal information on what is discussed, and even then with unacceptable delays. Given the huge impact the financial sector has had on society, keeping this lobbying behind closed doors is deeply problematic. Transparency reform is needed.
Multi-sectoral civil society coalition calls for greater protections for consumers, journalists, whistleblowers, researchers and workers.
NGOs have today responded to the Commission's reply to the European Ombudsman's recommendations on how to better handle revolving door cases within the Commission. In particular, they echo the demand for more transparency.
The European Commission directorate-general at the heart of the 'cash for influence' claims by UK MP Jack Straw (TAXUD - taxation and customs union), has now released to Corporate Europe Observatory information showing its lobby contacts in 2013 with the now disgraced ex-minister. The documents illustrate how Straw tried to use his influential name and impressive CV to help open lobby doors. They also expose the loopholes in EU lobby rules.
