We are at the forefront of the major discourse taking place that will affect businesses internationally. We convene private and public high-level international discussions and debates in the context of major societal, policy, geopolitical and business trends that are going to define the direction of business and policymaking in the future. We engage on a wide range of issues, from ESG, diversity, equity & inclusion to future leaders, skills & jobs, and from digitalisation & cybersecurity to sustainability and global taxation. We do this by operating through strategic international networks and developing and participating in a dynamic array of international engagement activities. We provide a range of consultancy and training services and programmes for businesses and other organisations, which we continue to expand and develop. And we help promote and advance the international operations and outreach of Ibec’s wholly-owned 40 industry associations and actively engage with over 130 international organisations and communities of which we are members, from the likes of Business Europe to international institutions such as Business at OECD.
