Corporate Europe Observatory

Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) is a research and campaign group working to expose and challenge the privileged access and influence enjoyed by corporations and their lobby groups in EU policy making. From Volkswagen’s Dieselgate affair to Monsanto’s glyphosate saga, it often takes a scandal to reveal the way big business lobbies try to shape EU policies in their interests, how they evade regulation and attempt to control the terms of debates of public interest. This often results in corporate capture of EU decision-making, which in turn leads to policies that exacerbate social injustice and accelerate environmental degradation across the world. It is crucial to roll back corporate power and to expose greenwashing in order to truly address global problems like poverty, climate change, social injustice, hunger and environmental destruction.
