LCCI's Policy and Campaigning

LCCI is the capital’s most representative business organisation – with members spanning small to multinational organisations, we reflect the broad interests of London businesses to policymakers, decision makers and opinion formers at every level.

We draw on our members’ experience and expertise to contribute regularly to consultations, inquiries and debates. Our practical and realistic views and suggestions help guide policy formulation and application.


About LCCI's Policy and Campaigning Work

Our role is to explore and highlight issues impacting the continued economic growth, success and prosperity of Global London. We aim to create an environment that aids and supports the success and growth of London business – from workforce skills to infrastructure and connectivity across the capital.

For more than 140 years LCCI has been actively lobbying for key London developments. We seek to positively influence policy, legislation and regulation at the local and national levels, with regular engagement with key stakeholders in City Hall, local government, Parliament and Whitehall.
