Dear DG Energy,
pursuant to Regulation 1049/2001 on public access to EU documents, and to the amended Aarhus Regulation, I would like to be communicated all the documents relating to meetings or events involving DG Energy on the one hand and representatives of private corporations or business associations or organisations on the other, where the issues of the EU ETS, carbon markets and article 6 were discussed in relation with COP26.
By Article 6, I refer to that included in the Paris Agreement, and the negotiations of the rulebook regarding international cooperation on carbon markets, in the run up and in the context of COP26.
More precisely my request applies to years 2020 and 2021, and includes :
- emails and mails exchanged in relation to the meetings and events,
- lists of the meetings and events, including remote (phone / video),
- policy documents, statements, position papers... shared by third party actors with the DG representatives
- notes of such meetings and events when it exists.
I prefer electronic format, but should certain documents be unavailable otherwise than in paper format, my postal address is :
95 rue des Couronnes
I am obviously aware of the restrictions and limits applicable to the right to public information and documentation, however I would appreciate, should my request be denied wholly or partially, to be sent specific explanations for this denial. Also I expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.
In case of denial, I reserve the right to appeal.
I am available to clarify my request if necessary and I thank you in advance.
Thank you for your e-mail of 20/11/2021. We hereby acknowledge receipt of
your application for access to documents, which was registered on

We refer to your e-mail of 20 November 2021 in which you make a request
for access to documents, registered on 22 November 2021 under the above
mentioned reference number. Your application is currently being handled.
However, we will not be in a position to complete the handling of your
application within the time limit of 15 working days, which expires on 13
An extended time limit is needed as the application concerns documents
held by different Services, which must be consulted.

accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding
public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 12 January 2022.
