Ethical Corporation, the U.K.-based publisher and conference sponsor, held its Responsible Business Summit 2011 in New York last week. The main topic was based on its recent report, “How to Embed Sustainability Across Different Parts of Your Company,” in which over 50 major companies reported on their biggest challenges. At the conference, speakers from Interface, MARS Chocolate, Veolia Water America, Xerox, ING, and Henkel led discussions on internal and external reporting, partnerships and collaboration, and community engagement. The need for clear metrics and incentives was emphasized as an operational requirement for best sustainability practices.

Reed Elsevier has announced the winners of its Environmental Challenge, a contest to encourage innovative ideas in improving access to safe and sustainable water. Tagore-SenGupta Foundation won the first prize of $50,000 for its project to install 12 arsenic removal units in communities in Cambodia. Jenna Forsty won the second prize of $25,000 for her project that focuses on low-resource chlorine generation to deal with unsafe water in western Kenya. The two winning projects will be featured in the Reed Elsevier journal Water Research, and will be honored at a reception in Sweden during World Water Week.
