About Business In The Community

Business in the Community stands for responsible business. Set up in Northern Ireland in 1989, we now have over 260 members and are the largest business-led coalition dedicated to corporate responsibility.

We are part of a UK-wide organisation with over 850 members and the unique ability to convene senior business leaders to tackle key social issues and use their skills and resources as a force for good.

Our membership continues to grow as more companies realise that just saying they are committed to being socially responsible is not enough. They now also understand that membership of Business in the Community is the most effective way of turning that commitment into action.

We challenge and support NI business to respond positively to the environment and be more sustainable, assisting firms through a range of support services designed to help meet both their legislative and corporate responsibilities towards the environment.

The NI Environmental Benchmarking Survey is one method we use to achieve this, and we are currently supporting businesses to look more closely at the circular economy to benefit their own organisations and our economy.
