Making business work

ICC vision: to enable business worldwide to secure peace, prosperity and opportunity for all.

ICC Secretary General John W.H. Denton AO said:

“As the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) celebrates its centenary year, we recognise that the world has come a long way since 1919—and we can be proud of our many achievements over the past 100 years to promote peace and prosperity through international trade. But faced with pressing global challenges in the 21st century, ICC and the global business community can— and must—do more as a force for good in the world. We will respond to this imperative with brave and bold action to meet the ambition of our renewed purpose. The organising principles and objectives in this work plan demonstrate our commitment to continually pioneer as we strive to enable business worldwide to secure peace, prosperity and opportunity for all.”

Five pioneer campaigns will serve as ICC organising principles to make business work for everyone, every day, everywhere. These campaigns aim to unlock the unique power of ICC’s global network to achieve real change at scale—from protecting the planet to ensuring decent work and economic opportunity for all. Each campaign encompasses proposals for policy reform grounded in private sector experience and expertise, together with outreach aimed at inspiring and enabling real world action.
