Dear Mr Pigeon,

We refer to your e-mail dated 20/03/2014 in which you make a request for access to documents related to correspondence, meetings and minutes between Commissioner Maroš Šefčovič and members of his cabinet and the companies Suez Environnement, Veolia Environnement and their lobby groups such as Eureau and AquaFed.

Aquafed is the only mentioned lobby group which contacted Commissioner Maroš Šefčovič for a meeting. Mr Bernd Biervert, Deputy Head of Cabinet, received Mr Gérard Payent, President of AquaFed, on 25 November 2013 regarding the ECI "Water and sanitation are a human right! Water is a public good, not a commodity!". No minutes of this meeting were established.

We enclose a copy of the requested correspondence received by Cabinet of Commissioner Maroš Šefčovič from Aquafed the 26th February 2014 related to ECI (2012)000003 "Human right to safe drinking water and sanitation"

There is not any other correspondence between Commissioner Maroš Šefčovič or members of his cabinet and the companies Suez Environnement, Veolia Environnement and their lobby groups.

Yours faithfully,
