CORE – The Standard for Responsible Business

Northern Ireland’s only corporate responsibility (CR) Standard

CORCORE logo_RGBE is a framework for identifying and measuring corporate responsibility activity and performance across organisations. It has been designed to work for the type and size of companies that make up the Northern Ireland economy.

CORE will enable you to map your entire corporate responsibility activity and benchmark it against other organisations, all verified by an external assessor. You will not only get an insight into your organisation’s CR performance, but you can also expect:

  • Positive profile and recognition
  • Improvement and development of your CR activity
  • Strong evidence of good practice for procurement
  • Improved staff engagement

CORE is open to all organisations, regardless of size, industry or sector. It is open to both members and non-members of Business in the Community.
