Dear Climate Action,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

1) All correspondence, including emails, sent and received since 01/01/2020, between the Commissioner for Climate Action, his cabinet, his officials, and any other representatives of DG CLIMA, and representatives from Toyota (Toyota Motor Corporation).

2) List of meetings, including the meeting’s minutes, since 01/01/2020, between officials and representatives of DG CLIMA and representatives from Toyota (Toyota Motor Corporation).

Should my request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also, I expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.

Yours faithfully,
Ben Youriev

Dear [email address],

It has now been over two and a half months since there was an update to this request and I have still yet to receive a clear reply, despite suggesting it would be received 'in the coming days' nearly two weeks ago. Additionally, the extended timeline for supplying such documents expired on 19 October 2021 and by law there should have been a response by this time.

Please could you provide the requested documents immediately or provide a clear short-term timeline of when they will be sent.

Yours sincerely,

Ben Youriev

Dear Mr Youriev,

 

Enclosed please find a copy of our reply.

 

We sincerely apologise for the delay in our reply.

 

According to standard operational procedure, the reply is usually also
sent to you by registered post. Please note, however, that due to the
extraordinary health and security measures currently in force during to
the COVID-19 epidemics, which include the requirement for all Commission
non-critical staff to telework, we are unfortunately not in a position to
follow this procedure until further notice.

 

We would therefore appreciate if you could confirm receipt of the present
e-mail by replying to [1][email address].

 

Kind regards,
