Chipotle Mexican Grill has teamed up with Willie Nelson for a video promoting natural eating. The animated piece features the song “The Scientist” by Coldplay, and is sung by Nelson himself. In conjunction with this partnership, Chipotle is launching an effort to make the company greener, announcing that it will use 10 million pounds of local produce in their establishments.

The government of India has decided against making it compulsory for all companies to have a policy for corporate social responsibility. Instead, the ministry of state for corporate affairs has released national voluntary guidelines on the social, environmental, and economic responsibilities of business. The government affirmed the mandatory CSR guidelines for public sector, state-run enterprises that were issued in April of last year.
