Join Us

In joining Business in the Community, you join a network of progressive businesses who look beyond the profit motive, who want to make a difference within society and who are prepared to collaborate to bring about change.

We are the membership organisation for businesses who want to publicly demonstrate a commitment to acting responsibly and invest in building a better society.

Join Business in the Community

 

What we ask of members

We believe the prosperity of business and society are inextricably linked. If every individual business strives to be the best it can be in all areas as a responsible business, there will be a positive multiplier effect that will benefit society, the economy and the environment. If businesses collaborate they can have a greater impact upon key issues than if acting alone.

This is why we ask our members to do two things: 

What BITC asks of its members

The first is to be the best you can be in all areas as a responsible business and embark on a journey of continuous improvement that delivers social, environmental and economic sustainability.

The second is to be a force for good by collaborating with other businesses in the network and investing in building a better society. This means supporting initiatives which are beyond your company’s immediate interests, but which will sustain growth in the long term.

To demonstrate your performance as a responsible business, we ask that you measure and report your objectives and achievements.

What membership offers you

Membership gives you access to the resources to develop your business and a network to bring about change.

Our flexible membership packages allow you to choose the level and type of support services you need to suit your business.  Depending on your strategic priorities, we can build a package that suits your requirements.  The total cost depends on your company size.

The membership contribution

Membership is open to all companies and organisations, regardless of size, location or experience in managing their business in a responsible and sustainable way.
Our flexible membership packages allow you to choose the level and type of support services you need to progress your responsible business strategy. This can include access to facilitated workshops, training and performance management tools and guidance on skills-based volunteering. 

The total cost of membership depends on your company turnover and includes a contribution to the Responsible Business movement PLUS the cost of one or more of the activities you chose.
