eco - Association of the Internet Industry


eco, with around 1,000 member companies, is the leading Internet industry association in Europe. Since 1995, eco has been instrumental in the development of the Internet in Germany, fostering new technologies, infrastructures and markets, and forming framework conditions.

In the Competence Network, important specialists and decision makers of the Internet industry are represented, and current and future Internet topics are driven forward.
Numerous eco services help to make the market more transparent for providers and users. We support members with legal consultations, in particular regarding data protection. For all users, we work to increase security and improve youth protection.

As an association, one of our most important tasks is to represent the interests of our members in politics, and in national and international committees.

In short: We are shaping the Internet.
