6 May 2021 RE: Access to Documents related to EU taxonomy for sustainable activities

Dear DG energy, DG Clima, Dg GROW, Secretariat General, DG FISMA, DG ECFIN

Referring to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on public access to EU documents, I would herewith like to ask for access to the following:

1- all correspondence (including email) between 1st january 2021 and 6th May 2021 between Commissioner Simson, Commissioner Timmermans, Commissioner Breton, President van der Leyen, Commissioner McGuinness, Commissioner Gentiloni and/or their cabinets and/or officials from DG Energy, DG Clima, DG Grow, DG Fisma and Secretariat General on one hand and stakeholders on the other, where EU taxonomy for sustainable activities was addressed.

2 - list of meetings/videocalls/calls between 1st December 2020 and 6th May 2021 between officials and/or representatives of the European Commission and stakeholders where the issue of EU taxonomy for sustainable activities was addressed.

3 - minutes of the meetings/videocalls/calls mentioned above.

I would like to make clear I prefer you produce the documents on a rolling basis.

At no point should the Commission’s search for—or deliberations concerning—certain documents delay the production of others that the Commission has already retrieved and elected to produce.

To the extent possible, we prefer the documents in electronic format. Documents that cannot be sent in electronic format should be sent to Corporate Europe Observatory, Rue d’Edimbourg 26, 1050 Brussels.

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.

I reserve the right to appeal.

Please confirm having received this application. I look forward to your reply within 15 business days, according to the regulation.

Thank you for your assistance.

Dear Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union,

I sent a request on May 6th regarding documents on taxonomy for sustainable finance that should have been responded by June 1st 2021, to which I have got no response at all from you, not even to assign a GESTDEM number and acknowledge receipt.

I hope you can send me an answer disclosing the documents requested as soon as possible. If no response in this week I'll file a confirmatory application,

best,

Belen Balanya
