INDUSTRY & ENERGY LOBBY

Distinct from the immensely powerful banking & finance interests in Bilderberg are those tied to the industry & energy sectors. Some of the largest companies in the world are represented here, by their top executives. Of particular note is the number and seniority of executives from the oil and gas industry.

We have divided up the corporations represented at Bilderberg into broad areas of interest. Although of course, any classification of the businesses at Bilderberg requires a certain amount of arbitrary distinction between sectors – for example, EADS is a gigantic defense company, but has interests in technology, manufacturing, security, aerospace, civil aviation, electronics and military hardware. And obviously, many of the giant investment corporations listed on the Banking and Finance Lobby page have interests in industry, energy, manufacturing, telecoms and tech.

The following list is taken from the 2013 attendees and Steering Committee members. Obviously individuals change job titles and directorships, but the information is as accurate as possible at the time of publication. Members of the Bilderberg Steering Committee are marked with an asterisk [*].
