Welcome to LobbyFacts

Welcome to LobbyFacts.eu – the platform providing essential data on lobbying in the European institutions. This site is a joint project by Corporate Europe Observatory and LobbyControl, which allows you to search, sort, filter, and analyse official data from the EU Transparency Register so journalists, activists, researchers, and the interested public can track lobbyists and their influence at the EU level over time.

  • Who are the biggest lobby spenders?

  • How do corporate and public interest lobbying compare?

  • Are companies investing more in lobbying than last year?

  • Which lobbyists meet most often with the Commission elite?

  • Which lobby actors hold the most access passes to the EU parliament?

Get started to find out.

Warning! As of 20 September 2021, the EU lobby register has changed format. Temporarily, the register is no longer providing daily data updates of all lobby data which means that the figures on LobbyFacts cannot currently be kept up-to-date. If, for example, you see a company, trade association, or lobby consultancy with "no figure available" for EU lobby costs, open the data card, and click the link to the EU lobby register where you will find the updated registration including EU lobby costs declaration. Regretably, under the lobby register format, NGOs and think tanks are no longer required to provide a figure for EU lobby costs. We will update LobbyFacts with the new data as soon as possible.
