Corporate Europe Observatory

Exposing the power of corporate lobbying in the EU

Challenge the power of corporate lobbies - support CEO!

We've come a long way since 1997 in casting light on the corporate capture of EU decision-making. There is a growing awareness of the harm done by corporate power, but the problems are far from being solved. In fact, far more pressure is needed!

The EU's response to the economic crisis has effectively undermined many of the democratic decision-making processes - with the Commission allowed to intervene in national budgets. Big business lobby groups are seeing their longstanding objectives implemented, including radical cuts to social welfare and privatisation programmes across Europe.

Help CEO keep up the work to expose how corporate lobbyists are interfering in our democracy.

Our independence is vitally important to our work, which is why CEO doesn't accept any funding from the EU, other governments or companies. We rely on the financial support of engaged individuals and organisations to help us plan and carry out our activities.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) told CEO today, and publicly announced on their website, that they would disclose most of the raw data of studies on glyphosate used in the EU's toxicity assessment of glyphosate.
In an attempt to fix its public image, Dieselgate-shaken Volkswagen names former EU Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard as member of its new ‘Sustainability Council’. Although the role is unpaid, it is highly questionable whether Volkswagen is actually committed to making up for its previous foul play.
The Commission proposal for 'mandatory' transparency register is a disappointment. Its measures will do little to help journalists, civil society and citizens scrutinise the corporate lobbies trying to manipulate EU policies in their favour.
Corporate Europe Observatory is looking for an experienced, creative and dynamic outreach and mobilisation organiser to strengthen our visibility as well as public engagement with CEO's work in countries across Europe. The 13-month contract will run from 1 December 2016 to 31 December 2017.
