CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

Citi has become the world’s first bank with 200 LEED-certified projects. The Platinum-level certification of its New York City flagship branch in Union Square added the 200th LEED project to the banks’ list. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program is the US Green Building Council’s rating system for designing and constructing energy efficient buildings.

Patagonia has launched its “Vote the Environment” campaign, with partners Wilco, Headcount, and the League of Conservation Voters. The campaign asks customers to register to vote and learn about candidates’ environmental records. The rock band Wilco will encourage audiences at its shows to use social media to promote the campaign.

The National Philanthropic Trust, one of the top 25 grant-making institutions in the US, has commented on the recently released “Giving USA Report on Philanthropy.” The Trust notes that donor-advised funds, DAFs, continued to show a marked increase in growth. NPT’s 2011 Report notes that $7.7 billion dollars in contributions to DAF’s in 2010 marked an increase of 25 percent compared with 2009.
