CCIA Applauds Business Roundtable Letter Redefining Corporate Responsibility

Washington — The Business Roundtable has announced its commitment via a letter signed by 181 corporate CEOs to operate their business to benefit all stakeholders including not just shareholders, but customers, employees, suppliers and communities. The Computer & Communications Industry Association applauds the Business Roundtable for encouraging corporations to re-articulate their purpose.

As an international tech trade association, CCIA has long believed that it is our obligation to promote the interest of the entire tech ecosystem including companies, employees, customers and the public interest in general. The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black.

“CCIA has always been sensitive to the uniquely significant role of technology and communications, and believe advancing our members’ interest means also advancing consumers’ interests and the broad public interest in preserving liberty and an open democratic society. The tech industry has a unique ability to enhance peoples’ ability to gather information, learn, analyze, and communicate – thus supporting the fundamentals of our free society.  We appreciate the Business Roundtable’s effort to redefine the positive role its private sector members can also have in protecting and advancing the interests of their many stakeholders and society at large.

“CCIA and our companies remain committed to protect the tech industry as a whole, our members and stakeholders and to advance society’s ability to benefit from the positive contributions that our industry can make, ever mindful that there are those who will seek to misuse our technology.”
