We achieved Gold status for the year 2008-09 for our performance in the Business in the Community’s (BitC) Corporate Responsibility Index (CRI) 2008-09.
In the individual categories of Community and Marketplace, we achieved over 95% and received Platinum status. In 2007, we won the Gold band; 2006, the Silver band and were recognized as one of the biggest improvers.
This year, 141 businesses participated in the BitC’s Corporate Responsibility Index, with seven companies achieving the new Platinum Plus level. In the current climate, it is more important than ever for businesses to acknowledge the impact they have on society and the environment and commit to tackling the issues, not just because they should, but because it is good for business.
In achieving Gold status, we have demonstrated that we integrate and improve responsibility throughout our operations by providing a systematic approach to managing, measuring and reporting on business impacts in society and on the environment.
Stephen Howard, Chief Executive, Business in the Community, said “I congratulate TCS on Gold in the 2008 Business in the Community Corporate Responsibility Index. At a time when trust and confidence in businesses is at an all time low, it is examples like this that will help to demonstrate that some businesses are taking the responsibility they have towards their people and the planet seriously and that it makes business sense. It is reassuring to see that climate change, skills development, supply chain management, board level reporting and workplace issues are top of the agenda for businesses. However, the results also show us that we still have a long way to go. If UK plc is to exit the recession fighting fit, then urgent actions need to be taken.”
