Business in the Community (BITC)

Being a responsible business is becoming increasingly important, especially in challenging economic times. As a leading UK investor, Finance Wales plays a key role in ensuring responsible investment is at the core of what we do.

Finance Wales became a member of BITC to further engage with the responsible business agenda, and to drive forward our responsible business activity within an effective, two-way partnership.

BITC is a business-led charity, working to shape a new contract between business and society, in order to secure a fairer society and a more sustainable future.
