    Complementary Information

    We have four employees working full time with EU climate and energy policy as part of the EU programme of CONCITO. Furthermore, we have an intern and a student assistant working half time. Most national work for climate and other supplementary issues will include focus on the EU regulation. Therefore, it is very difficult to separate the national work with the international, EU focussed and national work.

    Communication activities

    We will be active on the discussion on the new 2040 climate target as well as the climate architecture.

    We give input to the Danish Government and other national authorities for many the files mentioned above.

    We will seek to have a fruitful dialogue with especially the European Comission and national authorities about the future revision of emissions trading, RefuelEU aviation etc. – as we have done many times before.

    We expect to have dialogue with the European Commission of the future common agricultural policy (CAP), possibly the expert input to modelling tools for EU analysis (PRIMES, CAPRI etc.), and emissions trading in agriculture.

  • Meetings


    2 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
