Global issues and trends

ICC delivers solutions that address the major shifts taking place in the world economy. From making trade work for people and planet to making action on climate everyone’s business, our purpose is to enable business to secure peace, prosperity and opportunity for all.

Much of our work is of a very practical nature, focused on making it easier for business to operate internationally and do more as a force for good.
Drawing on the expertise and experience of our worldwide network to achieve real change at scale, we deliver tangible results in three key areas of activity: International engagement and advocacy, Rules and standards for the 21st Century and on the ground solutions and implementation.

These activities make ICC a unique and respected channel for business leadership in helping governments and other stakeholders manage global developments and work towards the achievement of global goals – for a brighter and more inclusive future for all.

Digital growth

From micro-enterprises to multinational conglomerates, businesses in every sector and every region of the world are becoming increasingly dependent on information and communication technologies (ICTs) and a secure, stable and trusted Internet to carry out their daily operations.

Global governance

Over the past two decades, the role of business in global governance has become increasingly important. ICC works to inform international policy debates in intergovernmental institutions – ensuring that global policy frameworks work with business to drive growth and economic development.
