Reboot Europe

Strong supporter of the European Parliament elections

BusinessEurope and the European business community have always strongly supported European integration and a strong European Union. Businesses are the backbone of our economy, fuelling innovation, generating employment, and fostering economic growth.


The European Parliament elections are not merely about selecting representatives, but about safeguarding our values, ensuring our voices are heard, and charting a path towards a brighter, more prosperous future. Under the slogan ‘Reboot Europe’, BusinessEurope has launched its campaign calling for policy changes in the next EU political cycle.

Europe needs a reboot to restore its competitiveness

To deliver for society, the EU needs strong companies as much as European companies need a strong European Union to succeed. Our companies are committed to play their role in society by producing quality goods and services at affordable prices, creating productive and fulfilling jobs, contributing to the financing of public services and infrastructure, innovating, and delivering enabling technologies for the green and digital transitions.


Unfortunately, they are currently held back by high energy costs, excessive regulation, lengthy permitting procedures, and skills and labour shortages. The EU must use the next political cycle to reboot its policies and improve its attractiveness as an investment location.
