Our Goals

An Economy That Works is an alliance of businesses and civil society organisations. Its ultimate aim is to help the UK succeed, both now and in the long term.

A successful economy must be productive, environmentally efficient and fair.

What makes this initiative unique is its systemic approach. Addressing employment issues while ignoring wellbeing problems, or reducing our carbon footprint while not providing opportunities for everyone to share economic benefits will only compound the challenges we face. We need comprehensive solutions. By tackling economic, social and environmental challenges in a holistic way, An Economy That Works offers a positive vision for the future of Britain as well as practical ideas to turn this vision into reality.
