Business in the Community welcomes 78 new members in 2021

Business in the Community (BITC), the Prince’s Responsible Business Network, welcomed 78 organisations into membership during 2021.

Comprising some of the UK’s largest employers, businesses of multiple sectors, and vital public service and education providers, the new members have joined BITC’s growing network at a pivotal time.

Some organisations have begun their journey of continual responsible business improvement by looking at how they can embed best practice at every level of their organisation. Others have started by working together to address the challenges created by COVID-19, driving community resilience and recovery, and seeking opportunities to support ‘levelling up’ efforts across the country. All will contribute to the mission started by BITC 40 years ago, creating positive impacts that benefit their communities, colleagues, and customers, and striving to ensure that the UK leads the world in responsible business.

Across the UK, over 600 BITC members embed responsible strategy and practices into their operations and take action to mobilise their skills, knowledge, and resources to support community activities, such as education and employment opportunities. Together, they are driving progress in line with BITC’s Responsible Business Map, which is based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs, also known as the Global Goals), and ensures good coverage of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors.

Nick Diamond, Membership Director at BITC said,

“We are delighted that 78 organisations have become members of Business in the Community in 2021, and are already hugely encouraged by their commitment to responsible improvement.

The challenges posed by the pandemic, coupled with growing public awareness of key issues in responsible business – inclusion and diversity, employee wellbeing, climate action – mean that now is a vital time for businesses to take stock of their actions and ensure they create positive societal impacts.

Joining BITC gives businesses new opportunities to connect with others to drive lasting change and we are so pleased to welcome these new members to our growing and purposeful network, the UK’s largest and longest established membership organisation dedicated to responsible business.”
