European Parliament explores role of the private sector in its water group

(3 March 2016) Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) explored the role of the secretariat of the European Parliament Water group.

The research group found that this secretariat is done by an organization that is dominated by private interests. It possibly violates the rules of the EP.

The European Parliament’s Transparency register has now ruled that it will investigate this.

EPSU has written to the European Commissioner for the Environment to point out that this group is not representing the sector. The Commission should ensure balanced representation.
