EAE new European lobby organisation for e-commerce

EAE new European lobby organisation for e-commerce

E-commerce lobby groups from seven countries have gathered under the international umbrella of the E-commerce Association Europe (EAE), with the purpose of lobbying, communication and networking. Several of the founding EAE members used to be members of the similar organisation EMOTA.

Brussels-based EAE wants to tackle difficult subjects like legislation, payment standards, logistics and sustainability. The organisation allows its members to use the EAE logo on their websites, but insists that EAE is not (yet) a certification mark. Its website eae.eu should be available in April.

 

Founding members of EAE are BeCommerce (Belgium), FDIH (Denmark), Fevad (France), Netcomm (Italy), Thuiswinkel.org (Netherlands), Distansehandel Norge (Norway) and Svensk Distanshandel (Sweden).
