Anvil Knitwear has released a CSR Progress Report on its 2011 operations, which outlines the apparel company’s reduced use of water, steam and electricity per pound of finished tee-shirt fabric. Among the details: a 10 percent reduction in water usage and a 25 percent reduction in landfill waste. A special, first-time Product Water footprint section finds that most of the water used at Anvil’s production facilities is returned to the same watershed from which it is sourced.

Batero Gold Corp., which owns the La Cumbre gold and copper mine in Kinchia, Colombia say it has committed to social and environmental practices, including its Farms for the Future resettlement program, which assists farmers to exchange less productive land for land better suited to coffee farming. Batero also provides clean drinking water to 38 families in the vicinity of the mining operations, and plans to expand its water service to over 1,000 people living in five communities surrounding the project. The company is also funding educational, cultural, and sports programs in the community.
