The Microsoft Alumni Foundation has named five finalists for the 2012 Integral Fellows Awards. The awards recognize Microsoft alumni who have dedicated their lives to creating extraordinary efforts to address challenges around the world. This year’s finalists were selected from 15 nominees submitted by their alumni peers, and from nonprofit organizations where Microsoft alumni are founders, officers, and volunteers.

Cabot Creamery has become the first dairy cooperative to achieve B Corporation Certification, a status granted by the non-profit, B Lab. The certification confirms a high level of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. With the B Corp status, Cabot joins brands such as Patagonia and Seventh Generation, and cooperatives including the Cooperative Home Care Associates, and the National Cooperative Grocers Association, and 600 other businesses.

Two airports in the U.K. have completed their first full year of carbon neutral operations. The airports, in East Midlands and Bournemouth, have implemented a series of carbon reduction programs over the last six years, including installation of wind turbines to provide electricity and the construction of a low carbon arrivals building.
