MGM Resorts International has been listed among Newsweek magazine’s 500 most environmentally responsible companies for the third consecutive year. MGM moved up 35 places to number 122, and also scored as the highest-ranking company in the casino resort industry and the third most highly rated among U.S. hotel and restaurant companies.

Sustainability will replace cost as one of the packaging industry’s major challenges within 10 years, according to a new study by Packaging World and DuPont. In the 2012 Survey of Future Packaging Trends, 75 percent of the 500 respondents said cost matters most today, but will fall to the third most important criteria in ten years, after lifecycle analysis and recyclability of the package.

AOL is joining with several partners to launch a multimedia PSA campaign to educate and empower parents to talk with their children about bullying. AOL is donating 170 million impressions to the Web ads, as well as space for banner ads, a feature in the “You’ve Got” video series starring Marlo Thomas and Kelly Ripa, and a spot on the AOL Impact page.
