Beyond Business, a consulting and sustainability reporting firm based in Israel, has published its first Sustainability Report. The report, “How a Little Consulting Firm Makes a Big Impact,” reviews the company’s performance during 2009 to 2010, and describes its status as the first carbon neutral consulting business in Israel. The report follows the Application Level A framework of the Global Reporting Initiative.

PlacerGrown, a nonprofit organization that helps local agricultural producers in California’s Central Valley market their produce, will present its annual Food and Farm Conference tomorrow in Auburn, California. This year, four workshops will focus on local food and sustainability, with segments dedicated to school and community gardens, building networks, and the CAFF Buy Fresh, Buy Local campaign. Over 250 farmers, and business and community leaders are expected to attend the conference’s 25 workshops, a cooking demonstration, and a keynote address about the area’s Passion for the Land project.
