We engage in dialogue and partnerships to align our business needs with the requirements of our major stakeholders, including customers, governments and industry bodies.
Governments are often our direct customers. We work to build strategic relationships with host governments in our key market countries.
The EU and national governments set the legislative and policy framework within which our business must be conducted.
They are a potential source of funding and support for research and technology, research and development, manufacturing, education and training initiatives, as well as for certain capital projects. On occasion they also provide support or sponsor our partners, suppliers and competitors.
We are committed to undertaking any lobbying activities in compliance with all applicable laws, and to behaving ethically in all our interactions with governments, their agencies and representatives.
All lobbying and engagement activities are conducted in line with the principles set out in our Global Code of Conduct.
Rolls-Royce is registered in the EU’s Transparency register.
We work in partnership with industry bodies across our sectors to deliver the best value for our customers.
