About our Policy and Campaigning

We draw on our members’ experience and expertise to contribute regularly to consultations, inquiries and debates. Our practical and realistic views and suggestions help guide policy formulation and application.

Lobbying for change

LCCI is the capital’s most representative business organisation – with more than 2000 members spanning small to multinational organisations. We reflect the broad interests of London businesses to policymakers, decision makers and opinion formers at every level.


Our role is to explore and highlight issues that could potentially hinder the continued economic growth, success and prosperity of our great city. We aim to create an environment that aids and supports our members’ success and growth.

For more than 140 years, LCCI has been actively lobbying for London. For instance, we supported establishing:

  • Heathrow and Gatwick airports
  • Canary Wharf’s Docklands Light Railway (DLR)
  • Crossrail
  • London City Airport

We are also a vocal campaigner, advancing the case for matters such as Crossrail 2, the new Thames river crossings, and more devolution for London.

This approach – seeking to positively influence and shape policy proposals, legislation and regulation relevant to London businesses – cements LCCI as a recognised authority for government, City Hall and public policy players.

LCCI policy activities and representatives frequently feature in the media, on TV, online and in newspapers, to highlight the interests of London businesses. An overview of recent press releases can be found here.

In-house research

Our research can cover any issue of relevance to London business; including skills, immigration, housing, transport infrastructure and exports. As the capital's most representative business membership organisation, our survey-based research is unique in being truly led by industry.
