The CSR Event Series at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada's annual convention will bring together experts in mining and sustainable development to learn about and discuss CSR issues. Sessions will cover a range of issues related to sustainable development in the mineral exploration and mining industries.  Attendees will hear from the Responsible Jewellery Council, Solidaridad, the International Financial Corporation, the Government of Canada, Resource Initiatives, Wildlife Conservation Society Canada, and the International Council on Mining and Metals, among others. The event is open to convention delegates and the public, and is free to attend. The PDAC takes place March 3rd through the 6th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Green Mountain Coffee has joined with four other coffee industry leaders to form the Coffeelands Food Security Coalition. Along with Starbucks, Counter Culture Coffee, Farmer Brothers, and Sustainable Harvest Coffee Importers, Green Mountain will help coffee farmers in Nicaragua fight seasonal hunger during the rainy season that leaves families without income for five to seven months. The three-year Empowering Food Secure Communities program will work with 150 women and their families to improve their farming and business skills, and to develop additional sources of income.
