What our members say about us

But what do our members say about us?

Mondi Group

It’s been a great first year working with BITC. Through a dedicated corporate advisor who has always pointed us in the right direction, we have enjoyed expert support and an invaluable network of BITC members who all deal with similar challenges every day.

- Arnavaz Schatten,
Social Sustainability Manager, Mondi Group

John Laing

Our relationship with BITC is that of a critical friend, able to recognise good performance but also able to identify areas of improvement, for which ample support is always available.

- David Micciche,
Health Safety Environment, Corporate Responsibility Advisor, John Laing

Eversheds

As a long standing member of Business in the Community, we have benefited hugely from the support, networking, leadership and volunteering opportunities available through BITC, as well as being challenged to continuously improve by completing their CR Index.

- Paul Smith,
Chairman, Eversheds

Novus Property Solutions Ltd

In terms of ‘taking CSR to the next level’ our most significant action to date was becoming a member of Business in the Community. Our corporate adviser provided valuable support and helped us to identify our strengths and weaknesses and initiate the process of developing a strategy.

- Stuart Seddon,
Company Chairman, Novus Property Solutions Ltd

Veolia

Continuing with our membership of Business in the Community is quite an easy decision. Not only are we able to measure ourselves in a fair and transparent way, which in turn helps us to improve but we also get to meet and network with some great like-minded organisations that also help us on our sustainability journey. Business in the Community have not only challenged but have coached us to be a better all-round industry player that is genuinely able to point to improved bottom line financial performance.

- Kevin Hurst,
Marketing and Communications Director, Veolia UK

Alliance Boots Group

What impresses me most about Business in the Community is the quality and helpfulness of their people; they really understand this whole agenda and have helped us to develop strategies that are relevant to both today’s and tomorrow’s world.

- Richard Ellis,
Director of Corporate Social Responsibility, Alliance Boots Group

Inprova Energy

There are lots of business membership organisations out there. BITC membership is different because it is a network of like minded companies from all sectors and sizes including large corporates and SMEs. With a shared commitment to responsible business practices as the starting point to your relationships, being part of the BITC network has truly provided us with some great business development opportunities founded on sound values. As a result, BITC networking opportunities have helped us secure existing client relationships and introduced us to new business.

- Andrew Diplock,
Director of Governance & Strategy, Inprova Energy

EMCOR

BITC has helped EMCOR UK to develop a more strategic approach to our Corporate Responsibility aims, helping us to work towards our vision to 'deliver sustainable value and to be admired by those whose lives we touch'. Working with BITC's experts has helped us better understand the contribution we are making in helping to tackle some of the social and environmental issues that affect our business, and how we can continue to enhance our services for our customers, to help them achieve their own corporate responsibility goals.

- Keith Chanter,
Group Chief Executive, EMCOR

Hogg Robinson Group

I know I speak for the whole team when I say we had a great evening and a most enjoyable time at the Awards Gala. It definitely sparked some very interesting discussion and we are already working on how we may enhance our current programme to deliver even greater impact.

- John Harvey,
Group Marketing Director, Hogg Robinson Group
