Responsible Lobbying Protocol
We have adopted the "Responsible Lobbying” Protocol, a document setting out the Group's guidelines for clear and transparent lobbying activity, aimed at avoiding the risk of undue influence, given also the lack of a defined regulatory framework for the sector. Through the Protocol, the Group discloses the objectives of its Institutional Relations activities as well as the commitments undertaken to ensure the respect of the principles of integrity, transparency, fairness, ethics, and sustainability in its relations with decision-makers. As already established in the other Codes of Conduct adopted by the Group, the Protocol provides a set of guiding principles for employees and external collaborations as well as a series of mandatory requirements to be respected in the dialogue with the Institutions. One section of the Protocol is dedicated to the core topic of the lobbying activity for Climate Change.
