Business in the Community Ireland is a movement for sustainable change in business. In a dynamic and changing environment, sustainable businesses are successful businesses.
Our purpose is to inspire and enable businesses to bring about a sustainable, low carbon economy and a more inclusive society where everyone thrives. We act as trusted advisers in sustainability and corporate social responsibility. We provide access to best practice and support businesses with practical management and monitoring systems. By facilitating forums for reflection and action, we ensure that businesses anticipate and are ready to meet the current pressing challenges of climate change, tapping into a diverse talent pool as well as improved understanding of the issues of social inclusion, diversity and accountability.
Our network has grown year on year since inception. We offer three membership streams helping companies at any stage of their sustainability journey.
Ireland’s leading certified standard for sustainability. Audited by the NSAI and based on ISO 26000, the Mark is the leading business standard for sustainability in Ireland.
Education and unemployment are key societal issues in Ireland. Companies can have a significant impact on these issues but benefit too through employee engagement opportunities. Our employment programmes can add value to any sustainability and CSR plan of activities.
