Modern public services, or services of general interest (SGIs), serve the fundamental goals of the EU, supporting business, social and territorial cohesion, economic and social solidarity and a better quality of life for all.
Present at the heart of the EU
Along with BusinessEurope and ETUC, SGI Europe is one of the three European general cross industry social partners. SGI Europe is an actor in the European social dialogue, having a voice in the European bipartite – in negotiating with trade unions – and tripartite – with social partners and representatives of the EU institutions – social dialogue at the highest level.
Lobbying for public services
SGI Europe, with its general secretariat in Brussels, represents the interests of its members before the European institutions.
They support on a regular basis the European Commission, as well as the European Council and the European Parliament, on any legislative proposal having an impact on Services of General Interest and their place in the Internal Market.
The importance of public services in Europe
SGI Europe also carries out projects promoting the importance of modern public services in Europe. Whether supported by the European Commission or carried out independently, SGI Europe intends to bring a new light on services of general interest, their modernisation and their central role in citizens’ lives.
