Engaging Leaders to Accelerate Responsible Business

Business in the Community (BITC) works to accelerate responsible business action to address these goals. Our research into the most significant barriers and drivers of responsible business action has helped us to identify six catalysts. Actions that will accelerate, scale and perpetuate sustainable, inclusive and fair corporate strategies.
