Business in the Community Ireland Business Working Responsibly Mark Information Session

Are you integrating social, environmental, ethical, human rights and consumer concerns into your business operations and strategy?

Join the leading companies in Ireland and achieve the Business Working Responsibly mark to gain a competitive advantage.

The Business Working Responsibly mark, audited by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) and based on ISO 26000, is the only independently audited standard for CSR and Sustainability in Ireland. It is available to all companies in Ireland and once achieved is valid for three years.

You are invited to this free information session to hear how SSE Ireland achieved the Mark and how their business benefitted from external validation of their sustainability. 29 leading companies in Ireland now have the Mark, will yours be next?

The Mark helps map your entire CSR and Sustainability activity and benchmark it against other organisations, all verified by an external assessor. The benefits of the Mark include:

• Improved employee morale

• Better tendering credentials

• Enhanced investor relations

• Profile as a leading organisation in sustainability in Ireland and internationally.

This free information session will comprise both practical advice about going for the Mark as well as detailed information on how the auditing process works.
