Mål och uppdrag

Organisationens mål och uppdrag: The Alliance for Lobbying Transparency and Ethics Regulation (ALTER-EU) is a coalition of over 200 civil society groups and trade unions concerned with the increasing influence exerted by corporate lobbyists on the political agenda in Europe, the resulting loss of democracy in EU decision-making and the postponement, weakening, or blockage even, of urgently needed progress on social, environmental and consumer-protection reforms

ALTER-EU is committed to transparency about EU interest representation. ALTER-EU 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.

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 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 ALTER-EU, 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.alter-eu.org/sites/default/files/documents/2012_ALTER-EU_CSCG_guidelines_Transparency_Register.pdf

Andra ekonomiska uppgifter eller kompletteringar som organisationen har uppgett ur öppenhetssynpunkt:

ALTER-EU is a coalition of organisations, and has no staff of its own, except for a coalition coordinator and occasional interns. The organisational budget was administered by a steering committee member and covered salary costs and office expenses of the coordinator in 2013 (a grant of 48,000 from the Isvara Foundation).

Lobbying expenditures were covered by voluntary contributions by the members of the Steering Committee and other members of the coalition. Our members contribute in kind (staff time) and share the costs for specific activities (rent of venues, cost of adverts and publications).

Following the guidelines of the EU Civil Society Contact Group and ALTER-EU, we have calculated that ALTER-EU spent an estimated 158,240 Euro in 2013 on activities carried out with the objective of influencing the policy formulation and decision-making processes of the European institutions. The estimated contributions from each of the organisations represented in the steering committee was:

- AccessInfo €7192
- Corporate Europe Observatory €73,500
- Friends of the Earth Europe €20,292
- Greenpeace €10,000
- LobbyControl €42,714
- SpinWatch €4542

Please note that the above-mentioned organisations have also registered individually and reported in detail about their lobbying expenses (including the amounts declared above for ALTER-EU lobbying activities).

The role of the ALTER-EU coalition coordinator is largely focussed on administration and coalition support and outreach tasks, but does include a small amount of external advocacy work, with costs estimated at €8,884 for 2013.
