adi Group Celebrate Responsible Business Week

Member News

Responsible Business Week (23-27 April) is an annual awareness campaign which celebrates the brighter side of business by sharing great responsible business success stories.

adi Group believes there is an important story to be told. Behind every organisation are real people, making a difference, improving society and changing lives, 365 days a year. Every organisation has the opportunity and responsibility to make a difference, sector by sector, place by place to improve society, change lives and shape a positive future.

Responsible Business Week sets out to champion the work companies that are leading to drive positive social, environmental and economic change in communities across the UK.

The Group has been a member of Business In The Community for a number of years and has actively engaged in numerous BITC programmes including supporting disadvantaged people back into the workplace through the Ready For Work scheme and has forged a strong partnership with its Business Class school partner, North Bromsgrove High School.

Every Business Can Make a Difference, Place by Place

This year, the theme of Responsible Business Week focuses on shining a spotlight on businesses who are working to make a difference by inspiring pride, protecting resources and engaging people in the places where they live and work. During the Week Business in the Community will showcase inspiring stories and convene a range of experts to ensure all businesses are equipped with the tools and knowledge to drive solutions, at speed and scale.

Amanda McKenzie, CEO Business in the Community commented “Responsible Business Week is an opportunity for businesses to shout about their successes and inspire each other to do even more. More than ever business is being expected to play its part in creating the society we all want. We are proud of adi Group who are showcasing some of the most ambitious, exciting and innovative responsible business ideas from across the UK”.

"Every business has the opportunity and responsibility to make a difference, sector by sector, place by place so we’re all doing our bit to help shape the future. If you are a company that has done something that you’re proud of, such as helping young people develop skills for the future, stimulating your local economy, supporting small business or using natural resources more efficiently, then you should consider showcasing your work too and joining the conversation."

Alan Lusty, Chief Executive Officer at adi Group added, "We're proud to once again be participating in and joining the conversation during Business In The Community's (BITC) Responsible Business Week.

"Our responsible business efforts fall under our Engineering A Better Future CSR Programme (Read our CSR reports here.) which sees us focus on the areas we can make the most impact on our people, our suppliers, our environment and our communities."

"Our partnership with BITC helps us to go beyond just being a responsible business. It helps us to really focus our efforts in conjunction with other members to make an even bigger impact on society and the world around us. We get to share our responsible business successes, learn how other businesses are making an impact as well as contribute to a national movement committed to bridging the gap between businesses and the community.”
