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.

More Than Leaders. Leadership.

Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote a thriving economy and expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.

About BRT

U.S. corporations employ millions of American workers, create opportunity for employees and shareholders, drive innovation, improve the lives of consumers, and provide health care and other benefits to American families. The way corporations are governed directly affects the well-being of employees, shareholders and consumers.

Business Roundtable advocates for corporate governance policies that help create long-term value, advance the economic interests of workers, shareholders and consumers, and uphold the highest ethical standards.
