Goals / Remit
In 2019 Burson-Marsteller merged with Cohn & Wolfe to create Burson Cohn & Wolfe (BCW). BCW Brussels specialises in EU and UN public affairs campaigns. We provide expertise in corporate, media, digital and crisis communications as part of our service offering. Our clients include trade associations, NGOs, companies and other organisations. We are a multicultural team with experience on a broad range of issues from competition, tax and trade policy to the environment, food, healthcare, energy, transport, technology, sport, foreign affairs and defence.
We are part of one of the world’s leading public relations and public affairs companies, which gives us access to the knowledge, experience and insights of colleagues in a worldwide network active in 112 countries around the world. Our European network gives us the insight and expertise to offer an integrated and complete service to our clients.
BCW Brussels is a founding member of EPACA, the European Public Affairs Consultancies’ Association. We helped shape the EPACA code of conduct which aims to promote the highest levels of professional conduct in the EU public affairs profession.
Our internal rules go further than the EPACA code, spelling out in great detail the transparency measures that our consultants must follow. BCW supports the introduction of a mandatory register of all interest groups working with the EU institutions.
BCW Brussels works for a range of clients including trade associations, NGOs, companies and other organisations. We are a multicultural team with years of experience advising clients on all EU policy areas, including competition, technology, tax, environment, food, healthcare, energy, transport, sport, foreign affairs and defence.

Lobbyists with EP accreditation
Time allocated corresponds strictly to the definition set out in the transparency register guidelines for direct and indirect lobbying. In the interest of transparency, to which we are committed, where in doubt we have assumed an activity is lobbying even if an alternative interpretation is possible.
All our employees are involved in activities covered by the register but not entirely so. Hence the percentage indicated relates to lobbying (direct and indirect) and the identification of the externalisation of effort, as under the guidelines.
