    Other activities

    The CBI continues to engage with all
    three European institutions – commission, parliament and council – to press for action to help deliver an effective growth and jobs agenda for Europe. We have stressed that
    any legislative activity, and particularly any in the field of financial services and social policy, should not be detrimental to the competitiveness of the European economy
    as a whole. The CBI has remained at the forefront of business lobbying on climate change, pursuing a balanced approach which can deliver on important goals without undermining industrial competitiveness. We also promote the further completion of the single market, most notably in the network industries.
