1. Letters, email and documents sent by civil society actors (NGOs, companies, business associations, chambers of commerce, etc.) to Commissioner Jourova and her cabinet in relation with the sustainable corporate governance and the corporate due diligence legislative process.
2. Minutes and notes from meetings (including phone call and videoconferences) held between Commissioner Jourova, her cabinet and civil society actors (NGOs, companies, business associations, chambers of commerce, etc.) in relation with the sustainable corporate governance and the corporate due diligence legislative process. Those include the meetings already registered in the Transparency Register and Commissioner Jourova's webpage (05/05/2021 with BusinessEurope ; 29/04/2021 with Hospodářská komora České republiky (HK ČR) ; etc.).
