Five of the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations have launched the ASEAN CSR Network, based in Singapore. The new Network includes representatives from existing CSR organizations in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and the ASEAN Foundation, a 14-year-old body dedicated to a sustainable future for all 10 member countries. The new CSR Network will encourage the sharing of CSR practices among its members, and push for international standards and guidelines for CSR to be implemented region-wide.

An updated version of “ULE 880: Sustainability for Manufacturing Organizations” is now open for public comment this week. Developed by a partnership between UL Environment, a division of Underwriters Laboratories, and the GreenBiz Group, ULE 880 is the first sustainability standard that focuses on manufacturers, measuring companies on more than 100 indicators. Revised last August by 1,500 comments in its initial phase, ULE880 will be published in a final version once the latest comment period ends.
