The corporate world is able to exert considerable influence on decision-making at EU institutions thanks to a lack of safeguards that protect the public interest. A frequent tactic used by lobbyists, usually from the private sector, to promote the interests they represent is to take part in expert groups that advise European policy makers.
Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) wants to promote transparency and integrity in the European decision-making process. Unambiguous regulation should combat conflicts of interest and ensure that European policy represents not only economic interests but also social and ecological ones, such as poverty reduction, food safety, and the protection of our natural environment. Through research, campaigns, and contact with EU officials and politicians, CEO stimulates transparency and integrity in EU policymaking.
Adessium Foundation is supporting CEO as part of our commitment to a society that safeguards the public interest.
