The CBI works to create a favourable business and regulatory environment for companies to provide pensions
What we do
Whether it is about managing defined benefit costs or cutting the red tape for complying with auto-enrolment, we aim to ensure the business voice is at the heart of the heart of the UK and EU pensions debate.
The future of occupational pensions is partly dependent on the success of a number of ongoing government and European Union reforms. Auto-enrolment, the move to a single-tier State Pension regime and the European debate on the potential imposition of a Solvency II-style funding regime on pensions are all areas in which the CBI is playing a leading role representing business interests both in Whitehall and Brussels.
