The Responsible Business Tracker®
HELPING BUSINESS TO FIND OUT HOW RESPONSIBLE THEY ARE
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS TO UNLOCK OPPORTUNITY
What is the Responsible Business Tracker®?
The Responsible Business Tracker® is a measurement tool available to all Business in the Community (BITC) members. It enables an assessment of their performance as a responsible business by tracking their progress against BITC’s Responsible Business Map, which was built on the UN’s Global Goals or Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Your organisation or sector may call this work corporate responsibility (CR), corporate social responsibility (CSR), sustainability or corporate citizenship but at BITC we call it responsible business.
The Tracker offers gap analysis, benchmarking against sector peers and the overall cohort and, through a scoring mechanism, the opportunity for recognition of leading practice, improvement and innovation. Scoring data can be leveraged internally to create traction for change. The Tracker identifies the areas of strength where companies can provide leadership to others and a route to recognition through BITC’s awards.
Why complete the Responsible Business Tracker®?
It is comprehensive yet manageable in size; bespoke while still allowing comparison between businesses; it provides qualitative insights alongside quantitative scores; it is impact-focused, and aligned with the Global Goals. It covers the responsible business agenda, caters for medium and large businesses in all sectors and is suitable for both listed and unlisted businesses. Crucially, the Tracker enables members to work with their relationship managers to plan how to make the best use of the tools BITC offers to achieve positive change.
Why is the tracker a core membership benefit?
The Tracker is core to BITC membership as it enables each member to work with their relationship manager to plan how they can best engage with BITC to drive improvement. As the Tracker is scored, it records improvement over time, so companies can benchmark performance. Scores will not be made public; the Tracker drives increased engagement within an organisation.
