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.

 

 
"There is de facto a systemic collusion between the Commission and business circles"
The way in which the Commission has appointed the head of its “in-house think-tank” has demonstrated its woefully inadequate conflict of interest assessment for new appointments, says Corporate Europe Observatory. The conflict of interest assessment applied to the former chief of the Lisbon Council, Ann Mettler as head of the new European Political Strategy Center (EPSC) does not appear to have explored her close cooperation with some of the biggest corporate players in the digital and technology market. In CEO's view, this casts serious doubts on the independence of the advice that is to be given to President Juncker and his college of commissioners.
Civil society organisations denounce European Commission’s leaked proposal
On 17 April, Via Campesina, the D190-20 Alliance and Corporate Europe Observatory held a lobby tour around the Brussels European quarter, highlighting the corporate lobbies who are pushing an aggressive agenda around TTIP (the EU-US trade deal currently being negotiated). There was a particular emphasis on the impacts TTIP will have, if passed, for farmers' livelihoods, food standards, and for the way food is produced in the EU. The next negotiation round will take place on 20 April, this time in New York.
