Worst EU Lobbying Awards 2010

Vote Now!

Thousands of corporate lobbyists roam the corridors of power in Brussels. Operating out of the spotlight, many of them do not hesitate to employ improper methods: pretending to be concerned environmentalists, scaremongering the EU into inaction, or securing privileged access to EU decision-makers. These underhand tactics have allowed corporate lobbyists to continue for-profit lobbying at the expense of more climate- and consumer-friendly regulation; putting profits before people and the planet.

You can be part of the solution. This year’s Worst EU Lobbying Awards is here: with the help of our anti-heroine Lobby-Cleaner, and your voice, we can clean up the lobbying scene in Brussels.

Vote for the most deserving nominees, spread the word amongst friends, and send a message to Commissioner Šefčovič, responsible for lobbying transparency in Europe, that it’s time to take the necessary steps to ensure that the European Commission puts public interest above the commercial interests of large companies.

Find out more about the finalists, and vote now!

Voting closes on November 26th
