How to utilise membership

Getting involved is simple.

When you join the ICC you become part of our global network of members.

Our policy steering committees act as the coordinating forums for all our work with members. By attending and participating in these forums, members have automatic access to all programme activity and can choose the level of engagement that is right for them and their company.

Speaking and participating in our events is also an excellent way to raise company profile, promote thought leadership and best practice. We deliver some of the largest and most international conferences and events in the ICC network, reaching thousands of experts and decision makers in over 50 countries across all global regions.

“ICC plays a key role in shaping and influencing the rules and standards for international trade. If we don’t engage, we are in effect defaulting to others to dictate the terms on which we trade and depend. For a country like the UK, with such a rich history of trade and depth of expertise and resources, there are many more opportunities created when we are at the table than when we are not.”

Juergen Maier CBE, Chair, Digital Catapult

Leveraging ICC membership

Properly leveraging membership is key to delivering value.

Being a member of ICC means that all employees are able to access to ICC services. Companies leverage ICC in different ways to suit their needs. In some cases, members focus on specific areas of interest such as trade, finance or human rights. In other cases, over 30 or more experts across member companies can be engaged in ICC activities. Alternatively, where in-house teams are small and resources limited, we can act as an ‘extension’ to government affairs teams covering areas of policy work that companies are not able to cover.

We recognise that time and bandwidth are always limited so we are flexible in our approach and will always aim to tailor support to the needs of members.

“It is very exciting and a huge privilege to support ICC United Kingdom, as Chair of the Energy and Environment Steering Committee, to help mobilise corporate Britain around climate action. The ICC has tremendous reach and convening capability, domestically and internationally, and is genuinely an organisation that can make an impact in ushering in the low carbon global economy.”
