Admiral has today become the latest member of Business in the Community (BITC), the Prince’s Responsible Business Network, and joins over 600 businesses who are committed to achieving business objectives by focusing on societal need. BITC has members across the UK, from Belfast to Bradford and Stirling to Swansea, who are working with communities to create thriving places for people to live and work.
BITC brings businesses together to tackle some of the biggest issues facing communities across the UK, from protecting the planet to leading on gender and racial equality. Admiral, the only Welsh FTSE 100 business, joins some of Wales’ largest employers who work together to advocate for responsible business practice, and connect their shared resources to support local people and communities.
The role of businesses in creating a fair and healthy society has been at the core of BITC’s agenda since it was founded by HRH Prince of Wales in 1982. For 40 years, BITC has been leading businesses to put responsibility into the heart of decision making, so that business decisions have a positive impact on the planet, communities, and people.
Rhian Langham, Head of People at Admiral, said:
“We’re excited to have joined BITC and can’t wait to see how the partnership can help us continue to be a leading responsible employer. Supporting our communities has always been a priority for us and we know as a major Welsh employer, we have a responsibility and passion to do this well. We look forward to seeing what we can achieve together.”
Sue Husband, Wales Director of Business in the Community, said:
“Businesses can achieve more when they unite together and that’s why we’re delighted to welcome Admiral as the latest member of BITC. Admiral is a huge employer in Wales, and a vital ambassador for business innovation in the country. We look forward to working with Admiral to build further on its strong tradition of philanthropy, community support, and sustainability.
“Over the past 40 years, businesses have tackled some of the biggest social and environmental issues in the UK, but there is still more work to be done. BITC members like Admiral help lead the way for businesses to not just address the challenges ahead, but to collectively use their expertise and leadership to bring about long-lasting change.”
