BITC Mark for Sustainable Business Practices

BITC Mark for Sustainable Business Practices

PM Group received the Business Working Responsibly Mark certification for responsible and sustainable business practices, at an awards ceremony in Dublin Castle on 15th November 2017.

The Mark is an independent review of business practices through a Corporate Responsibility lens and is independently audited by the NSAI, based on ISO 26000.
 
Speaking at the event Dave Murphy CEO said “PM Group is delighted to achieve the Business Working Responsibly Mark. It supports our core belief in doing the right thing and that being a responsible business is really good for our employees, clients and communities”.  We were among eight other companies receiving the Mark including RTE, the ESB and Dawn Meats and now join 29 other accredited organisations across Ireland. 
 
“Thank you to everyone who made this happen. It was achieved through our people’s involvement across a range of community pro bono, volunteering and education projects. This was underscored by a commitment to put Health & Safety at the heart of everything we do. The accreditation recognises the considerable support we give to environmental initiatives; the work we do to influence and contribute to sustainable projects for our clients and how we embrace ethical and quality standards across our workplace”, said Cathriona Fitzsimons, CSR Coordinator, PM Group. 
 
The Mark is a significant addition to other recent Supply Chain accreditations Achilles and EcoVardis. It is part of our objective to continually challenge ourselves to be a leading ethical and professional organisation, with strong core values that have positive impacts on the world around us.
