How to Develop a Responsible Core-Business Strategy
This Business in the Community (BITC) toolkit offers tips on how to collaborate with leaders and internal and external stakeholders to develop a responsible core-business strategy.
We know that we are making insufficient progress on the Global Goals, also known as the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and that we need businesses to take action to meet them. At Business in the Community (BITC), we are aiming to increase the pace and scale of responsible business action to tackle these goals.
To achieve this, we have researched the greatest barriers and drivers of responsible business and identified six Catalysts of Responsible Business: actions that will accelerate, scale and perpetuate sustainable, inclusive and fair corporate actions to tackle the biggest issues facing society.
This toolkit, which is part of the Six Catalysts of Responsible Business series, explores the reasons why we need to develop a responsible core-business strategy to help us work towards the Global Goals and the ways in which your organisation can implement one.
Creating Healthy Businesses
Business in the Community (BITC) defines a responsible business as a healthy business. It is one that puts creating healthy communities and a healthy environment at the centre of its strategy to achieve long-term value.
Healthy Businesses is at the centre of BITC’s Responsible Business Map, which guides our members on a journey of continuous improvement, working across the whole responsible business agenda.
Responsible Business and Strategy
Responsible business is critical to tackling the big issues facing the world. We need businesses to be faster, braver and bolder in their actions.
Led by our Global Goals Leadership Team, BITC is working to dramatically increase the pace and scale of responsible business, in order to meet the United Nations’ Global Goals, also known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Whatever issue, ESG (environment, social or governance factor), sustainability topic or specific Global Goal your business is focusing on, we can help your organisation be faster, braver and bolder. We will accelerate your progress to becoming a more responsible business and together create greater positive change.
