Dear Madam,

Thank you for your e-mail of 07/09/2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt of
your application for access to documents, which was registered on
07/09/2020 under reference number GESTDEM 2020/5287.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days.

The time limit will expire on 28/09/2020. 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
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
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 Foreign Policy Instruments,

Thank you for your request for clarification, which I hereby like to provide you.
My objective is to assess the effectiveness and impact of this project; examine which multinational corporations are involved in this project; and the commitments made by these corporations in the context of this project.

Hence, I would like to receive documents that contain information about the multinational corporations involved in this project; the commitments they have made; which concrete outcomes are pursued; how their progress is measured and what kind of support these companies receive from the EU or UN partners in this project.

Documents thus include terms of reference; lists of private sector partners involved, communication with private sector partners; minutes and presentations; and progress overview reports submitted by private sector partners. The timeline is from 2017 until now.

Please do let me know if you need more information.

Yours faithfully,

Maria Hengeveld
