    Specific activities covered by the Register

Our main focus is on Information Society related policies, such as the European Digital Agenda, including digital single market, telecommunications single market, data protection, intellectual property, cyber security, consumer policy and internet governance.

We also follow wider EU policies including the Internal Market, competition, innovation and economic relations with the EU’s major trading partners, such as with the US (TTIP), Japan, India or Brazil as well as plurilateral and multilateral trade negotiations (TiSA and at WTO level).

As a provider of the UK’s largest occupational pension fund, we also take an interest in the EU’s pension policy such as the IORP 2 Directive (Institutions for Occupational Retirement Provision).

Given BT’s strong commitment to reduce CO2 emissions we take an active interest in Climate Change policy and debates around Green ICT and energy efficiency.

Procurement: BT supplies managed networked IT services to multinational corporations, domestic businesses, non-governmental organisations and local, national and international institutions, including from the EU.

Grants: BT participates in EU funded R&D projects and we are involved in the roll-out of regional broad band in the UK, which in some regions is also EU funded. Although, not all of the latter funding goes directly to BT, but to the regional governments, we included it.

N.B. the numbers are for our financial year running from 04/2013 to 03/2014 and represent an indicative calculation based on the data we collected in-house.

Our declared EU Affairs budget is for the same period and represents the proportional share in working time, office space and other spending, which occurs in lobbying the European Institutions. It also comprises membership fees (or where appropriate the relevant share of) in organisations and payments for consultants supporting our lobbying activities at EU level.

We will update this entry soon for the financial year from 04/2014 to 03/2015 .
