AT&T customers have broken the world record for recycling wireless devices, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. 50,942 devices were recycled during a one-week period. IN 2011, AT&T collected three million cell phones for reuse and recycling. The company expects to surpass that number this year due to a new trade-in program.

The Committee to Encourage Corporate Philanthropy has published their annual report, Giving in Numbers 2012 Edition. The report covers trends in giving, including cash and non-cash giving, volunteer programs, management and program costs, focus areas, and more. Among the findings are that 47 percent of 2011 giving was for Community Investment—proactive grants that aid long-term business goals while serving a critical community need. Over 200 corporations, including 62 of the Fortune 500, participated in the survey.  

Bloomberg Businessweek will host the Global Green Summit on December 4th in Singapore. The event will feature Bloomberg’s leading journalists, speakers in public and private sector sustainability, and executives from around the world. The Summit will focus on how to accelerate innovation, create sources of capital for more integrated investments, and learning lessons from global corporations leading the way in sustainable business practices.
