Policy team

Influence in the corridors of power

The IoD represents its members and advances the case for business in government, parliament, the media and other influential forums.

The Policy Unit oversees the development of IoD policy on the full range of issues affecting business from trade to taxation, enterprise to education.

Areas of influence

The UK's prosperity depends on enterprise and it is imperative that the views of directors are heard. We exert our influence in all matters of economic and public policy:

  • By taking a position in the media (both nationally and locally)
  • Through direct discussion with ministers and civil servants
  • Through written responses to consultation documents and production of research and policy papers.
