Worst EU lobbying awards 2010 : 3 more days left to vote

In 2005 a platform of several organisations (Corporate Europe Observatory, Friends of the Earth Europe, Lobby Control and Spinwatch) handed out the first Worst EU-lobbying award to  the fake-grassroots organisation Campaign for Creativity (C4C)
The nominees in the climate category are :
  • Arcelor-Mittal : for successfully lobbying to get out of paying for permits under the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS)
  • BusinessEurope : for it’s aggressive lobbying against EU-regulations to cut CO2-emissions while pretending to support climate actions.
  • RWE (nPower) : for it’s lobby work to keep its oil and coal power plants open
Voting closes November 26.
