About Us

Who we are

We exist to build healthy communities with successful businesses at their heart.

Business in the Community – The Prince’s Responsible Business Network - is a business-led membership organisation made up of progressive businesses of all sizes who understand that the prosperity of business and society are mutually dependent.
 
In the spirit of being a responsible business, our members are signed up to: 

  • Being the best they can be in delivering social, environmental and economic sustainability across all areas of their business
  • Join with other businesses to bring together their collective strength and be a force for good

What we do

We set a course for responsible business. 

We use our Responsible Business Map to guide members on a journey of continuous improvement, working across the whole responsible business agenda. From community engagement to employment, diversity and the circular economy, we offer expert advice and specialist resources, driving best practice by convening, sharing learning and recognising great performance across our influential Network. 
 
Through participation in Business in the Community’s groundbreaking campaigns and programmes, businesses can collaborate and help to bring about lasting change on a wider scale which benefits both business and society.
