    Main EU files targeted

    Our main goal is to protect the nature and environment so that human activity does not exceed the tolerance limits of our planet. We are engaged in a wide range of issues in environmental and nature conservation, but work specifically with the areas conservation, climate change, energy and transportation.

    Although we have a national agenda, many environmental questions have proven to have an international or even global character. Issues concerning development, resource allocations and international cooperation are very much part of our everyday activities. In teh EU our main focus is concerning EUs green deal, microplastics, textile and wastemanagement, but also energy.

    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.
