Upcoming Event: September 16th- National Network Meeting

Sep 16, 2015

Do you have difficulty explaining the business case for corporate responsibility and sustainability?

Are you sometimes challenged by having to maintain momentum for sustainability initiatives, no matter how successful?

We invite our members to join us for the Q3 Meeting of the Business in the Community Ireland Network to hear how senior practitioners, in three leading companies, from three different sectors, are able to explain and sustain the business case for sustainability.  You will hear how sustainability has been embedded in company operations because by so doing, risks are mitigated; costs are reduced; the organisation is future-proofed; employees and customers are engaged; and continued innovation becomes the norm – giving rise to an ability to differentiate these companies in extraordinarily competitive, operating markets.


Our three Guest Speakers are:

Jim Fitzharris, Assistant Group Secretary, Smurfit Kappa Group.

Sarah Dempsey, Head of Corporate Affairs & Economics, Ulster Bank.

Carmel McQuaid, Head of Sustainable Business, Marks & Spencer.


In addition, you will hear key updates from Business in the Community Ireland and be able to take home BITCI’s latest publication on the Business Case for CSR.

This is a meeting you cannot afford to miss.

Please feel free to extend the invitation to colleagues. RSVP to Leah Naughton at events@bitc.ie by Thursday, 10th September.
