We are delighted to have achieved the Business in the Community (BITC) Responsible Business Tracker Mark to help improve our commitments in doing business in a responsible and sustainable manner.

What is the Responsible Business Tracker Mark?

The Responsible Business Tracker® (the Tracker) is Business in the Community’s (BITC) scored measurement tool. It is linked to our Responsible Business Map which is underpinned by the United Nations (UN) Global Goals, also known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It demonstrates, to our stakeholders in a highly visible way, that we care about doing business in a responsible and sustainable manner.

As a self-assessment survey tool, the Tracker enables detailed understanding of our business’ responsible business performance. The Tracker recognises best practice and helps us to improve by offering gap analysis, benchmarking against sector peers and the overall cohort. Through a scoring mechanism, it recognises leading practice, improvement and innovation. It identifies areas of strength where companies can provide leadership to others and is a route to recognition through BITC’s celebrations of best practice.

How does this benefit Novus and our clients?

The tracker will bring visibility to our customers, colleagues and the wider community of the work we’re doing to help the communities we live and work in through our Build Back Better initiative. It also provides us with qualitative insights and quantitative scores to make further improvements to make us a more responsible business. These impacts will not only help highlight our core values, but they will also be aligned with the Global Goals which focus on promoting prosperity while protecting the planet.

Our Head of Social Vale and Client/Customer Care, Kevin Rhone commented:

“We’re thrilled to have achieved the BITC Responsible Business Tracker Mark, joining other companies in identifying strong opportunities to improve our responsible business agenda. We’re always looking for new pathways to improve and through this digital delivery we can now track our progress to enhance our responses through benchmarking against other businesses within the industry.

As an active member of the BITC with the Responsible Business Tracker Mark, we will continue to build healthy communities and protect the environment.”
