Responsible Business PartnershipDecember 08th 2021
There is an increasing need to explain and illustrate how businesses of all sizes, and not just corporates, can benefit from becoming ‘responsible businesses’ by more actively supporting the environment, communities and society in general.
As BITC suggests, a Responsible business is one focused on achieving commercial success in ways that honour ethical values and respect people, communities and the natural environment. This approach minimises any negative environmental and social impacts and maximise the positive ones.
Groundwork Wales, as part of the WECAN programme, has instigated the creation of the Responsible Business Partnership. The aims of the Partnership are to:
- Explain and promote how all businesses can benefit from becoming more ‘responsible’.
- Highlight environmental, community and tourism projects for businesses to invest in.
- Provide complementary services to enable businesses to adopt a strategic approach to become more responsible and benefit from related investment opportunities.
The Responsible Business Partnership includes: Blaenavon World Heritage Partnership, Business in the Community, Brecon Beacons National Park Authority, Groundwork Wales, South Wales Chamber of Commerce and Welsh Government.
Our first joint event was held on 18 April 2013.
