Bristol Initiative

What is the Bristol Initiative?

The Bristol Initiative is a business leadership team which enables the business community to positively influence the way our area is shaped, managed and developed. As a Certified B Corp, our purpose is to bring leaders together to create a prosperous city region for all, where business and community thrives.

Our community is a collection of 140 leading employers and community groups across a diverse range of sectors in Bristol and the wider region, who are committed to creating an economically, sustainable and culturally prosperous region.

The Initiative exists to help drive long term change, we work with members and local and national decision makers to drive policy around issues that impact our region, ranging from promoting clean growth, housing, skills, climate change and transport.
