The CBI works to create a favourable business and regulatory environment for companies to provide pensions
What we do
The CBI is the leading business voice on pension issues, whether it be ensuring auto-enrolment works for employers, reducing the cost of DB or helping to drive market innovation in the pensions industry, by consulting with our members we shape policy for the benefit of businesses of all sizes across the country.
The sustained and affordable future of the UK’s pension system is dependent on a number of government reforms being effectively implemented.
The CBI lobbies government, regulators and other key players in pensions to help minimise the impact of legacy DB, ensuring auto-enrolment is successfully rolled out as more SMEs become subject to the rules, and promoting a sensible approach to regulating DC schemes.
The CBI represents UK business interests outside of Whitehall in Brussels, leading the debate against Solvency II- style funding for pension schemes.
