The Green/EFA group is committed to transparency and accountability. We believe that citizens have a right to know what their political representatives are doing and that they should be able to see and control how power is being exercised in Brussels.

This is why we have decided, as a first step, to publish lists of meetings that we have with outside lobbyists and interest groups, using a tool which exports meetings from our calendars and publishes them online. LobbyCal is open-source so it is free for everyone to use.

We do not publish meetings held with endangered political dissidents, whistle-blowers or journalists.
