Nestlé Canada has been named one of the “Best Workplaces in Canada” by the Great Place to Work Institute Canada, which recognizes the top 100 employers in the country. The list is determined by an in-depth review of a company’s culture, and by an anonymous survey completed by employees.

REI has released its sixth annual Stewardship Report. The report outlines the company’s work to address its operational impact on the environment, protect outdoor natural spaces, and provide and an inclusive and rewarding workplace. It covers metrics and actions for REI’s headquarters, 122 stores, two distribution centers, and its supply chain.

Hershey has announced a program to use GPS mapping to provide precise measurements of farm acreage as part of the Hershey “Learn to Grow Farm Program” in Ghana. The GPS mapping will help farmers better plan and manage their cocoa farms.
