Business in the Community
Business in the Community – The Prince’s Responsible Business Network – is a business-led membership organisation made up of progressive businesses of all sizes who understand that the prosperity of business and society are mutually dependent.
We use our Responsible Business Map to guide members on a journey of continuous improvement, working across the whole responsible business agenda. From community engagement to employment, diversity and the circular economy, we offer expert advice and specialist resources, driving best practice by convening, sharing learning and recognising great performance across our influential Network.
Through participation in Business in the Community’s groundbreaking campaigns and programmes, businesses can collaborate and help to bring about lasting change on a wider scale which benefits both business and society.
