Our priorities in Wales

Our aim is to help Welsh businesses prosper through maximising the commercial benefits of responsible business practice, whilst making a real difference to the people and environment of Wales. We ask our members to work with us and our partners on these priority issues to create a significant impact.

Education and young people

Our ambition is for young people in Wales, particularly those in challenging circumstances, to be inspired and supported through partnerships with business.  Our aim is to bridge the gap between the classroom and the world of work, and ensure Wales gets the skilled workforce it needs for the future.


Our ambition is for large businesses to support both small businesses and social enterprise to reduce social deprivation and stimulate economic growth.  We want to help Welsh businesses to respond robustly to the increasing emphasis on social and environmental credentials in public and private procurement.


Our ambition is that people who are unemployed in Wales, particularly from excluded groups, receive support from business to build the skills and confidence they need to gain and sustain employment.  We want to help businesses unlock talent and reduce social deprivation.

Workplace and employees

Our ambition is a diverse, skilled and healthy Welsh workforce that plays an active role in supporting companies across Wales.  We want to help businesses to develop the talent and skills of their workforce through employee volunteering.
