The Confederation of European Business, shortened BUSINESSEUROPE, is a lobby group representing enterprises of all sizes in the European Union (EU) and six non-EU European countries. The members of the confederation are the national employers' organizations. The current president of the confederation is Emma Marcegaglia, while the Director General is Markus J. Beyrer.

Based in Brussels, the confederation is officially recognised as a social partner at European level, is involved in a range of economic and social decisions and cooperates with a number of stakeholders and business partners. It promotes the interests of corporate citizens to ensure that public policy supports the European economy.


In 2014, Unilever decided to terminate their membership in BUSINESSEUROPE's Advisory and Support Group, because it opposed the organisation's stance on CO2 emissions.[1][2]
