The CE Group employs 50 people at our companies in Cambridge, Brussels and Budapest. As the trading arm of a charitable trust, we’re driven by a desire to make a difference, not just a profit.

When you’re grappling with policy recommendations for a government, business or NGO, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with information. We can help.
