    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 49 member organisations in Europe, including in all EU28 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. A credible EU lobbying transparency register should include names of individual lobbyists and the issues that they try to influence, provide precise and comparable financial information on lobbying, and have effective sanctions to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the information disclosed. In an effort to arrive at a more objective way of calculating lobbying expenditures, we follow guidelines that result from consultations with public interest organisations, professionals working on lobby transparency as well as experts of US lobby disclosure legislation. Our registration is therefore providing a more comprehensive calculation of our lobbying expenses for activities that aim to influence the policy formulation and decision-making processes of the European Institutions, and a list of those who, on behalf of BirdLife International, European Division carry out such activities.

Our registration is based on the guidelines for transparent registration developed by the Civil Society Contact Group and ALTER-EU. Find the guidelines on http://www.act4europe.org/register or http://www.alter-eu.org
