What is Business Roundtable

Business Roundtable (BRT) is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote sound public policy and a thriving U.S. economy.

Leading on Corporate Governance

American workers, shareholders and citizens benefit when companies operate under the highest standards of governance. Business Roundtable promotes governance practices that uphold the highest ethical standards, deliver value to customers and shareholders, and expand economic opportunity for employees and their families. 

Urging Smart Financial Regulation

U.S. companies cannot fully invest and hire when burdened by complex, needless financial laws and regulations. We support smart financial regulation – including improvements to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act – that would encourage investment, increase U.S. competitiveness and provide real economic benefits for American workers and their families.
