Darden Restaurants has achieved a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign 2013 Corporate Equality Index for its business practices and policies toward its lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees. Darden is the only restaurant company among the 252 businesses that scored the top rating.

Boeing has won the Arabia CSR Network’s top award for its partnership with INJAZ Al Arab, a non-profit organization, for developing a program to reduce unemployment in the Middle East. Boeing has partnered with INJAZ Al Arab on a variety of initiatives since 2009, most recently on a program to teach high school students how to start and run their own business.

The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute has honored architect and visionary William McDonough, known for his pioneering book, Cradle to Cradle at a private gala in San Francisco. Co-written with Michael Braungart, the book launched a revolution in thinking about product life cycles. Joining the celebration was Ron Blitzer, CEO of Be Green Packaging, which manufactures and distributes compostable and recyclable plant fiber packaging, and which has held a Cradle to Cradle Silver certification since 2010.
