Competitive business climate Highlighted PillarA regulatory climate that supports a healthy environment while allowing businesses to grow at the pace of the modern global economy is an essential element for a state with North Carolina’s lofty growth goals. However, regulations cost Americans nearly $2 trillion every year, and concerns about overly burdensome regulations continue to be an issue that remains top of mind for our members in the organized business community.

The North Carolina Chamber believes that a modernized, streamlined regulatory climate is key to reducing the unnecessary hurdles that can stop positive expansion in its tracks. To that end, we approach regulatory advocacy as a continual process aimed at striking the smart balance between supporting the growth requirements of job creators and providing commonsense safeguards for a healthy natural environment.
