What do we cover?
EuroCommerce stands for competitive, sustainable and fair retail and trade in Europe. Our policy areas reflect this vision:
How do we work with members?
EuroCommerce is a member-driven association and we invite all members to get involved. Our members regularly meet to discuss policy initiatives, exchange information, and develop a common stance on issues. Commission officials and Members of the European Parliament are frequent guests at our meetings. With face-to-face meetings at all levels, events, research, publications, position papers and voting recommendations, we aim to tell our story and proactively influence legislation and policies. Our team also engages with the media to get across our messages, as policy is not formed in isolation.
Where we can, we form coalitions with others to achieve better results. EuroCommerce is part of a number of long-standing coalitions, such as the Retail Forum for Sustainability and the Alliance for Sustainable Fisheries. Both have achieved specific policy objectives. We engage across potential divides with trade unions and consumer and environmental NGOs, such as WWF, to understand societal trends and to adopt joint positions where helpful.
