Transparency & Governance

 

WWF in the EU Transparency Register

We support transparency and democracy in decision-making on all levels of society. Since 2008, WWF EPO is registered on the European Transparency Register where we list the key pieces of EU legislation and policies we are following as well as the costs of our advocacy work at EU level.

We believe it’s important to make lobbying transparent and are also calling on the EU institutions to do so. The Transparency Register must become a legally binding requirement for anyone who wants to meet with EU decision makers. All EU institutions should transparently declare who they are meeting with and on what subjects.

Find out more about the work led by ALTER-EU (Alliance for Lobbying Transparency and Ethics Regulation) and supported by WWF EPO.

Governance

WWF's European Policy Programme is organised as a Belgian AISBL and our statutes are published in the Moniteur Belge.

The key bodies of the governance structure are:

The Strategy Board

The strategy board meets twice a year to advise on the running of our office and to oversee strategy and implementation plans. It brings together representatives of twelve WWF National Organisations and Programme Offices in Europe and WWF International. Its current chair is Lovisa Hagberg of WWF Sweden. Other members include representatives from WWF Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Poland, SpainUnited Kingdom, Austria and the Danube-Carpathian office and Mediterranean offices.  

The strategy board has advisory responsibilities for the running of the office and oversees strategy and implementation plans but does not have formal decision-making powers. It is convened twice a year.

The General Assembly

The General Assembly is the legal decision-making body of the European Policy Programme. It is also accountable to the Belgian authorities for the proper and transparent administration and functioning of the office. It consists of one organisational member (WWF International) and four individual members.
