The Centre for Progressive Policy is a think tank that champions inclusive economic growth. We believe that economic growth is a force for good: it is essential for raising living standards, and it can and should be delivered in line with the path to net zero. But the default model of ‘growing the pie’ first and redistributing the proceeds later does not work. The benefits of growth do not trickle down and efforts to reduce high and rising inequalities through taxation and welfare only take us so far. Instead, we need a model of economic growth that unlocks the productivity potential of all people and all places. At CPP we call this model inclusive growth.
CPP exists to make inclusive growth a reality in the UK. As a thinktank, we focus on place, productivity and public services as key drivers of inclusive growth. We also host the Inclusive Growth Network of places across the UK pioneering new approaches on the ground.
