CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

The Global Reporting Initiative has released a sustainability report that outlines the organization’s performance, achievements, and goals. GRI produces the Sustainability Reporting Framework that sets out the principles and indicators that can be used to measure and report economic, environmental, and social performance. GRI has followed its own Guidelines to produce its report, which covers 2009-2010. Among the highlights: a diverse workplace with staff from more than 20 countries; the use of public transport and bicycles by staff to travel to work; and a decrease in emissions from staff air travel by 13 percent.

UPS has flown a special charter flight loaded with 50 metric tons of food from Cologne, Germany to Nairobi, Kenya. The food shipment will assist the World Food Programme in its famine relief efforts in the Horn of Africa. Last week’s special flight was the UPS response to an urgent appeal by UNICEF, CARE, and the WFP for emergency supplies.
