Which chemical industry lobbyists are spending most of their time in Brussels?

As a result, European Union citizens are being inundated with information about the lobbyists’ political and financial activities, according to an annual EU report.

The EU Parliament’s parliamentary watchdog has warned that the lobbying effort of some of the industry’s top lobbyists has reached a critical mass, raising questions about the future of the EU’s chemical industry.

“Our findings show a clear increase in lobbying activity, including in the EU Parliament,” says an EU Commission report on lobbying activity in the European Parliament.

“This has been fuelled by the lobbying activity of the most important and well-known lobbyists in the industry, which includes the chemical industry.”

In its annual report, the Parliament’s watchdog, the Commission, says that lobbyists’ activities in the Brussels lobby area have increased in recent years, with “a number of EU Parliament members” spending “significant amounts” of time in the capital.

“The increased activity in Brussels indicates that the chemical sector’s lobbying efforts are growing,” said the Commission’s spokesperson for the European Union, Marwan Choukri.

“It is evident that the industry is increasingly active in Brussels, and this has contributed to the growth of lobbying activity.”

The EU Parliament, which was established in the early 1970s, is the highest legislative body in the bloc, and it reports directly to the European Council.

The Commission’s report says the lobbying activities of some members of the European parliament have been “significant and well known”.

“Some of these lobbying activities have been identified as having been financed by the chemical industries,” it said.

“Some members of parliament have also spent substantial sums on their travel, for example, travelling to Brussels on business.”

In addition, the report noted that “in some cases, these members have received substantial amounts of political funding” from the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

“In addition to the large amounts of money received by MEPs in Brussels for their activities, MEPs also spend considerable time at the EU headquarters in Brussels,” the report said.

The EU’s parliament has seen a significant rise in lobbying by lobbyists since the EU launched its reform process for the chemical business in 2013.

The first steps taken by the European Commission to combat the lobbyists included a rule to prohibit lobbyists from “dealing in public office” and the establishment of a special committee to “monitor the activities of all the MEPs, with the aim of establishing a common policy to deal with the lobbying problem”.

But it has also taken several measures to limit lobbying activity.

It has also been asked by EU law to publish data on the number of lobbyists and MEPs who spend “at least five days in Brussels in 2016”.

“This will enable transparency on the lobbyists who work in Brussels and also provide a better picture of the activities,” the Commission said.

According to the report, lobbyists have been spending more than €9m (£7.4m) on their activities in Brussels since the start of 2016.

It also said that lobbying activity has increased in other EU capitals, including London, Berlin, Paris and Brussels, with a rise of €1.6m in London in 2016.

According the Commission report, lobbying activity by MEP’s is growing “at a rapid pace” in Brussels.

“For example, the number and types of MEPs have grown rapidly,” it noted.

“There is a clear trend towards the growing influence of MEP’s in Brussels.”

The Commission has also warned that lobbying activities in Europe’s parliament could “have a major impact on the EU chemical industry’s future”.

“Lobbying activities of EU members in Brussels are also increasing and could have a significant impact on a number of chemicals products and the chemical market,” it warned.
