Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: The Green 10 comprises ten of the largest European environmental organisations/networks. It coordinates joint responses and recommendations to EU decision makers.

We work with the EU law-making institutions - the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers - to ensure that the environment is placed at the heart of policymaking. This includes working with our member organisations in the Member States to facilitate their input into the EU decision-making process.

While campaigning at EU level, Green 10 NGOs:

- encourage the full implementation of EU environmental laws and policies in the Member States;
- lobby for new environmental proposals, as appropriate;
- work with the EU institutions to ensure that policies under consideration are as environmentally effective as possible;
- promote EU environmental leadership in the global political arena.
The organisation's fields of interests are:
  • sub-national
  • national
  • European
  • global

Main EU initiatives covered the year before by activities falling under the scope of the Transparency Register:

In terms of public awareness-raising, the Green 10:

Inform their members and the wider public of environmental developments at EU level, and encourage them to make their voice heard;
give a voice to thousands of locally-based associations, which would otherwise have no access to EU decision-makers;
contribute to the strengthening of civil society across Europe, through training in advocacy skills, policy analysis and the EU decision-making process.

How do we work?

The Green 10 tries to observe as democratic a process of decision-making as possible, taking into account the views of member organisations, their staff, boards and members. We reflect the views of millions of European citizens and thousands of local associations at EU level.

The strength of the Green 10 is in our networks. European environmental NGOs regularly send information to their members and supporters. This is vital to ensure these groups are fully informed of developments at EU level, so that they can contribute effectively to the EU decision-making process.

The Green 10 believes that this register fails 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 (financial details available on the individual organisation pages). 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.

Other (financial) information provided by the organisation:

The Green10 is an informal coalition and as such does not have a budget. Money for joint activities between its ten member organisations comes from budget line items in each of the individual organisations' annual budgets.

Membership contributions are an important part of the finances of Green 10 organisations. We also receive core funding from the European Commission, except for Greenpeace. Furthermore, some member organisations of the Green 10 receive funding on a case-by-case basis for specific projects from governments and foundations.

Some organisations also receive specific donations from industry. Greenpeace does not request or accept financial support from governments, the EU or industry. All Green 10 organisations are externally audited every year.
