The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) (Formerly BIS)

The De­part­ment for Busi­ness, Energy and In­dus­trial Strategy (BEIS) replaced the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) in July 2016. The de­part­ment invests in skills and edu­ca­tion to promote trade, boost in­nov­a­tion and help people to start and grow a busi­ness. BEIS also sets regulations and legislations to help business to tackle climate change.

BEIS is a min­is­terial de­part­ment employing around 5,000 staff who work in offices in London, Aberdeen and around the UK.

BEIS is re­spons­ible for UK gov­ern­ment policy on areas in­clud­ing:

  • Business
  • Industrial strategy
  • Science, research and innovation
  • Energy and clean growth 
  • Climate change
