Dear Ms Douo,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 12/11/2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt of
your application for access to documents, which was registered on

European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on
04/12/2020. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be
informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union. Therefore, the
European Commission cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or
problems linked to the use of this system.

 

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the Commission. For further information on your
rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

 

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence.  In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.

Dear Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs,

We are interested in the formation of the alliance, and in particular, any third parties that influenced this process. As such, we are unable to name specific groups, as we do not know who was lobbying (as only the meetings of the Commissioner, cabinet and director general level meeting are listed online, leaving us in the dark about all other GROW meetings level meetings), which is why we focused on the topic discussed at meetings. However, to clarify further, we are interested in such meetings with representatives of the fossil fuel industry.

Yours faithfully,

Myriam Douo
