The CMBA notably calls upon the European Commission, the European Parliament and the EU Member States to focus on the creative and media businesses in their joint efforts to foster innovation, growth and employment in the Information Society. The sectors represented by the CMBA are more than a mere driver for technology development or an "added value" to the European Digital Agenda. They are the true value of the Information Society. Since its creation in November 2004, the Creative and Media Business Alliance (CMBA) has adopted a series of "Position Papers" and has contributed to various public consultations launched by the EU institutions on topics relating to the development of the Information Society and of a competitive knowledge-based economy.

Other (financial) information provided by the organisation:

As an informal coalition, the CMBA does not have any budget of its own. Expenses (e.g., running a website/mailing-list) are covered on an ad hoc basis by CMBA members individually. The trade associations holding the CMBA's rotating secretariat on a six-months basis do not charge other CMBA members for potential costs associated with the provison of meeting rooms and the secretarial function itself is assumed on a voluntary basis. Potential extraordinary costs (e.g., organisation of a dinner/conference/seminar) would simply be split among CMBA members.
