But we know that the support your organisation needs goes beyond the here and now.

Year of Impact
As we head into 2021, we will continue to ensure the voice of business is heard, especially as we navigate the end of the UK’s transition period – with firms facing further challenge and change. Alongside challenges, 2021 provides the opportunity for the UK and UK business to shape our long-term competitiveness, as we host COP26 and the G7.
“I am proud of the role the CBI has played, working with government to plan a way through these dark days. In the midst of this unprecedented crisis the CBI has launched important long-term initiatives including the HEAT commission to help us get to net zero by 2050, and Change the Race Ratio championing diversity and inclusion in business.— Lord Karan Bilimoria, CBE, DL, CBI President
“I have heard time and time again your commitment to build back better. As the UK looks to the immediate term challenges of COVID-19 and securing a Brexit trade deal, the CBI will continue to be with you every step of the way.”
