Value Chain - Business in the Community

Value Chain

Our Responsible Business Map guides our members on a journey of continuous improvement, working across the whole responsible business agenda.

To be a responsible business organisations need to be underpinned by responsible governance and transparency. The inner part of Business in the Community’s (BITC) Responsible Business MapTM lists five aspects a business needs to consider in this area. These need to be accompanied by leadership at every level.

Value chains is one of these five aspects.

Responsible business activities and outcomes are not limited to businesses’ operations but extend across their value chain, to suppliers, customers, partners, and local communities. Businesses increase their understanding of the risks, opportunities, and impacts related to their products and services and make informed decisions to deliver value and create economic growth through an approach of collaboration and shared responsibility.

Resilient supply chains drive growth and prosperity and multiply impact, delivering social and environmental benefits at scale while creating business value.
