Doelstellingen en taken

Doelstellingen en taken van de organisatie: Greenpeace is a global non-profit organisation that uses non-violent direct action to tackle the biggest threats to our environment. Greenpeace aims to protect and conserve nature and to promote peace by investigating, exposing and confronting environmental abuse, challenging the political and economic powers that can effect change, driving economically responsible and socially just solutions that offer hope for current and future generations, and inspire people to take responsibility for the planet. Greenpeace speaks for 2.9 million supporters worldwide.

Greenpeace European Unit is based in Brussels, from where we monitor the work of the EU institutions, expose deficient EU laws, challenge EU decision-makers to act responsibly in the public interest, and confront industry lobbies that undermine environmental protection in their pursuit of their private interests.

Greenpeace is committed to transparency about EU interest representation. Greenpeace believes that this register fails basic transparency standards and that it does not provide EU lobbying transparency. We therefore choose to give all relevant information that we consider necessary for lobbying transparency. A credible EU lobbying transparency register includes names of individuals 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 their required 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 Greenpeace, carried out such activities.

Our registration is based on the guidelines for transparent registration developed by the Civil Society Contact Group and ALTER-EU. The guidelines can be found at
