Business in the Community's Responsible Business of the Year

Recognising businesses that are creating long-term value whilst integrating the sustainability issues most critical to their business.

Patrick O'Meara, Membership Director, BITC, gives his reflections on the Finalists for the Responsible Business of the Year Award. 

The Responsible Business of the Year Award is Business in the Community’s flagship award: we seek to recognise leading businesses that are creating long term value. It is independently judged and is the highest accolade that we offer.

Being a responsible business is about how you make your money in a sustainable and responsible way, not how you spend your profits. Therefore, social and environmental considerations should sit alongside the economic drivers when businesses make commercial decisions.
