Reputation, trust and culture


Achieving the Business Working Responsibly Mark is a visible testimony of excellence in CSR. It showcases your organisation as best in class.

In addition to the external validation, organisations cite the benefits of the process itself as it provides a detailed gap analysis as well as bringing disparate parts of the organisation together in one cohesive framework based on ISO26000.

Certification with The Mark through audit will:

  • Provide a management tool to assess the  organisation’s operational risks and opportunities worldwide
  • Deliver a detailed assessment of gaps and a road-map of opportunities
  • Allow the organisation to benchmark its practices and performance amongst peers
  • Provide independent verification by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) 
  • Prove your corporate responsibility and sustainability credentials in contracting processes and government tenders where key social and environmental criteria are used to select preferred bidders
  • Leverage investment potential as more and more investment houses and indices (e.g. Dow Jones Sustainability Index and FTSE4Good) want evidence of good corporate practices
  • Improve brand awareness and reputation as The Mark can be used in marketing and promotional materials to endorse your CSR commitments to all stakeholders both internally and externally
  • Enhance your profile as we announce organisations that have achieved the Mark and we include them in our  high level CEO events annually
  • Attract and retain employees as achieving the Mark is a clear signal of best in class CSR
