CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

Six hundred business leaders, investors, environmentalists, and policy makers will gather at the Ceres annual conference, which begins tomorrow in Oakland. The conference, “Igniting Innovation, Scaling Sustainability,” will address issues such as natural gas “frocking,” water scarcity, and how to finance the market for energy efficiency retrofits. Ceres is a national network of investors, environmental organizations, and other public interest groups working with companies and investors to address sustainability challenges.

The Boston University Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future has published a report that discusses the actualization of a green economy in the context of sustainable development. The report, “Beyond Rio + 20: Governance for a Green Economy,” was produced by a task force of academics, government officials, and civic leaders convened at the Pardee Center. It was distributed to delegates at the 2nd Rio + 20 Procom meeting held at the United Nations in March.
