    Stichting BirdLife Europe   (BirdLife Europe)

    EU Transparency Register

    1083162721-43 First registered on 04 Dec 2008

    Goals / Remit

    BirdLife Europe is the European Division of BirdLife International, a worldwide Partnership of more than 120 bird and nature conservation organisations that works to conserve birds, their habitats and global biodiversity, working with people towards sustainability in the use of natural resources. The European Division coordinates the activities of 45 member organisations in Europe, including in all EU27 Member States.

    BirdLife Europe contributes to and influences EU environmental policy making and implementation, and raises awareness about the importance of birds and biodiversity at EU, European and global levels.

    BirdLife Europe is committed to transparency about EU interest representation. BirdLife Europe believes that this register does not meet basic transparency standards and that it does not provide EU lobbying transparency. When registering, we have therefore chosen to give all relevant information that we consider necessary for lobbying transparency.

    Main EU files targeted

    European Green deal, Biodiversity Strategy, Farm to Fork Strategy, Forest strategy, Nature Restoration Law, Sustainable Use Directive, Sustainable food systems legislation, Forest monitoring framework legislation, Implementation of the Birds and Habitats Directives, CAP implementation, regional fisheries management plans and implementation of CFP, Fisheries control regulation, Fit for 55 package, Renewable energy Directive, RepowerEU, access to justice, environmental inspections, revision of Environmental crime directive, EU budget and recovery fund, SDGs mainstreaming, Brexit, implementation of REACH.
