Beiträge die mit lobbyism getaggt sind

In Brüssel sind etwa 2.500 Lobbying-Organisationen ansässig, für die rund 15.000 Lobbyisten tätig sind. Doch die Bemühungen um mehr Transparenz auf diesem Gebiet waren in Europa bisher vergebens.

UK, France and Germany lobbied for flawed car emissions tests

The UK, France and Germany have been accused of hypocrisy for lobbying behind the scenes to keep outmoded car tests for carbon emissions, but later publicly calling for a European investigation into Volkswagen’s rigging of car air pollution tests.

Leaked documents seen by the Guardian show the three countries lobbied the European commission to keep loopholes in car tests that would increase real world carbon dioxide emissions by 14% above those claimed.
Germany went further than the UK, calling for the tests to be conducted on sloping downhill tracks, and for allowing m
