Starbucks has opened its third profit-sharing community store in the East End community of Houston. The other two community stores are in Los Angeles and New York. A share of the profits from each store goes to specific organizations that serve the needs of the citizens in that community. In Houston, the funds will go to the Association for the Advancement of Mexican Americans, which helps disadvantaged and at-risk youth in the East End. The Houston store opening comes on the one-year anniversary of the Starbucks Community Store pilot program.

Domtar is teaming up with First Book to provide 20,000 books to schoolchildren. The Montreal-based fiber products company will work with the Washington D.C.-based organization by giving $25,000 in grants to schools and community programs to be used at the First Book Marketplace, a Web site that provides age-appropriate children’s books at prices 50 to 90 percent below retail cost.

SAP has been ranked as the software sector leader by the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes for the sixth consecutive year. SAP received a score of 84 percent based on economic, environmental, and social criteria, an eight percent improvement over last year’s score.
