Think Tanks are fulfilling an important public role and provide policy-makers with informed analysis. As tax exempted non-profit organisations they are politically responsible actors and serve the public interest. Independent Think Tanks (in contrast to organizations that advocate specific group interests) therefore need to be politically credible and socially accountable. The disclosure of sponsors/funders is key in order to maintain trust among working partners and the public eye. For this reason, EPCentre recognises and seeks to fulfill the standards that were set by Transparify.
