    Goals / Remit

    Environmental Defense Fund Europe is an affiliate organization of Environmental Defense fund.

    Environmental Defense Fund has a 50-year track record of using economics, science and partnerships to provide pragmatic solutions to the world’s most pressing environmental problems. Environmental Defense Fund Europe works in the heart of decision making in Brussels and across Europe. We collaborate with politicians, policy makers, businesses and academia to hasten the transition to a carbon free economy, develop and implement ambitious environmental policies across Europe, and share learnings from Europe to other parts of the globe. By developing a significant presence in Brussels and raising our profile as a global organisation, we will ensure that we can disseminate the best science and economics to achieve cohesive solutions that are effective locally, regionally and globally.

    Meetings

    10 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: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en 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.
