Keeping you right up to date. A roundup of key responsible business resources and activities published in the first six months of 2023.

Halfway through 2023, this rewind explores the top responsible business resources that Business in the Community (BITC) has published this year. Responsible business practices do not take a break, but this is the perfect time to reflect, recharge and re-think your responsible agenda.

If your organisation wants to improve its strategy in key issue areas and have a greater impact on society, BITC’s resources can help you make a positive impact on the people and places around you. 

Why Be a Responsible Business?

BITC defines responsible business as delivering long-term value for all stakeholders by minimising any negative impact and maximising positive impact on society and the environment. Being a responsible business is crucial, as there is no such thing as a neutral business.
