Business in the Community IrelandDue to overwhelming demand, we have scheduled another information session for May 10th, 2012 in the Munster region, kindly hosted by Janssen Pharmaceutical. The Business Working Responsibly Mark is Ireland’s only certification for responsible and sustainable business practices. CRH Ireland, ESB, Intel Ireland and Microsoft Ireland achieved the Mark in 2011 and several other companies are using the process to identify gaps in their responsible and sustainable practices.

Any company that achieves the Mark in the first half of 2012 will be recognised at the Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI) annual CEO Forum on October 17th so BITCI is offering a free one hour introduction to the Business Working Responsibly Mark on Wednesday 25th April 2012. Attendees are asked to arrive from 7.45am with an 8am start. The session will close at 9am.

This information session will be of value to any company interested in:

  • understanding more about the Mark
  • completing the Business Working Responsibly Mark questionnaire only for internal assessment and a gap analysis of its responsible and sustainable business practices
  • achieving the Business Working Responsibly Mark by completing and passing both the Business Working Responsibly Mark questionnaire and audit

The event will be relevant to executives who manage all or part of a company’s responsible and sustainable practices such as: corporate responsibility managers as well as managers with responsibility for human resources, customer relations, procurement, environment / facilities or quality.

In order to achieve the Mark in time for participation at the CEO Forum, companies should complete the questionnaire by July 31st 2012.
