A decade of CORE
Corporate Responsibility

A decade of CORE

2023 is the 18th year of the Awards which are run in partnership with key sponsor Henry Brothers and event partner JP Corry, along with media partners Ulster Business and U105.

On the night, six companies were lauded for their longstanding commitment to responsible business. Allen & Overy, Belfast Harbour, Henry Brothers, George Best Belfast City Airport, Openreach, and firmus energy have held CORE – The Standard for Responsible Business  accreditation since the prestigious accolade was launched 10 years ago.

Chris Conway, Chair of BITC and Chief Executive of Translink, commented: “These Awards are the best platform to bring the great work of Northern Ireland’s responsible businesses into the spotlight and celebrate organisations going beyond profit to make NI a better place to work and live.

“In the 10th year of CORE: The Standard for Responsible Business, it was particularly pertinent to profile those organisations who – despite the changing and challenging landscape of business and government in Northern Ireland over the past few years in particular – have remained committed to integrating responsible business into every avenue of their organisations.

“This is my last year as Chair of BITC, a role I have cherished. My support for everything BITC stands for is unwavering, and as always awards night is a fantastic opportunity to feel inspired by others and challenged to do more within my own organisation. I wish BITC and its members every success for the future.”
