Policy publications

The IoD concentrates on the issues of most concern to business, examining them in depth and drawing substantially on our members' experience.

We exert our influence in a number of different ways:

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

To maximise our influence, we communicate the IoD viewpoint to the full range of policy-makers. We are in frequent contact with ministers, civil servants, special advisers and government agencies to ensure that IoD members' views are represented accurately at all stages of the policy process.
