Business expertise

ICC’s understanding of business is unmatched - an advantage that naturally emerge from the collective expertise of our members who actively engage international commerce on a daily basis.

Why does ICC bring a unique perspective? 

We draw on the expertise, experience and ideas of businesses throughout our global network to serve as an informed partner of governments in designing policies that work in and for the real economy.  Our network and the diversity of our members across all regions give legitimacy to the influence of ICC’s advocacy work and trust in rules setting. The perspective and contributions of our network keeps us agile enough to evolve in alignment with the speed of business needs in a constantly changing environment. 

Through extensive consultations with our ICC policy commissions, we examine major issues of interest to the business world, prepare policy products and recommendations to contribute to intergovernmental discussions, as well as rules and codes to facilitate international business transactions.  Experts from diverse backgrounds make up the specialised working bodies that establish our business stance on a broad range of topics, from banking regulation and global taxation to ethical marketing and climate change. 

Members and experts rely on ICC to get business views across to governments and intergovernmental organisations, whose decisions affect corporate finances and operations worldwide. Their expertise also contributes to the globally recognised trainings and events we host to keep pace with the latest developments and issues.
