Factsheet: Strengthening society

Business is a force for good in society. Business is making a difference in the UK and around the world, just by doing what it does best. But business is being challenged about its purpose and whether it has a broader responsibility to tackle major societal and environmental challenges. There is a loud debate underway about what more business leaders can do to rise to these challenges.

  • 26m people employed by companies of all sizes across the UK
  • 67% of CEOs do not believe that business is doing enough to address global sustainability challenges
  • £185bn paid in taxes by business in 2015/16
