ALTER-EU (Alliance for Lobbying Transparency and Ethics Regulation) denounces their over-representation, in a study published on 10 July.

ALTER-EU points out that SMEs, NGOs and trade unions do not have the same opportunities. They represent 5%, 8% and 1%, respectively, of non-governmental participants.
