Ireland: CEOs sign Corporate Responsibility Charter
Date: 23 Oct 2003
Twenty-three chief executives from companies based in the Republic of Ireland have signed a Corporate Responsibility Charter, covering greater stakeholder dialogue and accountability.
The charter has been introduced by Business in the Community Ireland, an independent sister organisation to Business in the Community UK.
Padraig McManus, chief executive of ESB and vice chairman of BITC Ireland, said: "Corporate responsibility should be viewed as an essential component of business decision-making and more than ever needs to be fully integrated into company strategy".
Business in the Community Ireland currently has twenty six members, including some of Ireland's biggest names. The recent initiative follows a range of programmes in the last year, including one on corporate reporting.
