Financial data

Financial year: 01/2013 - 12/2013
Estimated costs to the organisation directly related to representing interests to EU institutions in that year: 4750000  € - 5000000  €
Amount and source of funding received from the EU institutions in financial year n-1 of registration
Procurement: 0 €
Grants: 0 €
Other (financial) information provided by the organisation:

The amount above is our best estimate of the overall cost of activities falling under the revised scope of the Register including meetings, conversations, correspondence with officials of EU Institutions, work/activities to prepare positions, organize meetings, etc. to support advocacy pursued either directly or through trade or industry associations. Costs for conference sponsorships, consultancy work in support of advocacy and association memberships are now included in the cost estimate.

The zero figure for procurement and grants means the following : (i) we cannot totally exclude that EU funding might have occurred across our European network of affiliates and businesses, for instance through the supply of petrol/diesel, lubricants or heating oil (ii)even if there is any, it would be de minimis compared to the size of our businesses and related investments (over USD 3billion).
