EPSU questions role Commissioner Vella at dinner event corporate water lobby group

(21 January 2016) European Commissioner Karmenu Vella promoted the private sector role in water at a recent high level event on 19 November 2015. EPSU has made clear to the Commissioner that this is not appropriate.

He attended an event of WSSTP, a technology platform on water. This grouping acts as the secretariat of the European Parliament's water group, chaired by Dutch conservative MEP Esther de Lange.

It is another attempt by corporate interests to influence the European water agenda.
