“The CBI Economics team yet again delivered a gold-standard piece of research which will inform policymaking on air pollution for years to come. Their forensic economic analysis, combined with their world-class reputation, is invaluable in rebuffing speculation and rumour, providing policy-makers the evidence they need to deliver action for clean air.”
Imogen Martineau, Clean Air Fund
“It has been a pleasure working with the CBI Economics team to develop and conduct surveys on how businesses have responded to COVID-19 in terms of technology adoption and organisational innovation. Working together has ensured that our questions are business-relevant and allowed us to obtain responses from the CBI's survey panel. Our report has been referenced by government and has received national press coverage.”
