Responsible Business

Responsible Business sits as the third pillar of Chamber vision project, BCCJ 5.0. At the BCCJ, we recognise the growing importance of applying business activities in a manner that considerate of economic, social and environmental benefits for all stakeholders. By operating in a way that promotes all-round progressive, sustainable development, not only do organisations appeal more to consumers, but also in attracting and retaining employees.

BCCJ Responsible Business Forum | Planet – Sept 17, 1200-1400

Covid-19 may have taught us that companies need to to take a longer-term view of risk, especially one as serious as the future of our climate. But right now, businesses will focus on making up lost ground, while governments will roll out aggressive ‘kick-start’ policies to reinvigorate economies. With this, we risk derailing global efforts to limit warming, but also see a great opportunity to embrace a low carbon future, refocusing on a green economy rather than sticking to previously hard-rooted 20th-century business models and infrastructure. With structural change comes a chance to modernise the economy with a sustainable production system at the core.

COVID-19 and Responsible Business

The COVID-19 crisis has impacted the economy, people and the planet. Adopting a responsible business conduct approach in government and business responses to the crisis will generate short and long-term benefits such as increased resilience, a fairer and more inclusive distribution of benefits from recovery measures, and a stronger contribution to sustainable development. This page highlights some of the responsible business measures and initiatives BCCJ members are adopting in the fight against COVID-19.
