 Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Thursday, February 25th:

Informex, the chemical trade show, has announced its first five “Profiles in Sustainability” awards to companies that have demonstrated their commitment to improving sustainability through currently viable projects. The judging panel, with representatives from the American Chemical Society’s Green Chemistry Institute, the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates, and trade media, graded submissions on scope and extent, benefit to the environment, and economic feasibility.  The five winning companies were DSM, IoLiTec, Lonza, Segetis, and The Wercs. 

ShoreBank Pacific has joined with Mercy Corps to offer a special “Help for Haiti” certificate of deposit. The partnership CD will generate ongoing financial support for Mercy Corps’ rebuilding efforts. Bank customers can open a 15-month CD and agree to donate the 1 percent interest to Mercy Corps’ Haiti relief efforts. ShoreBank Pacific operates on triple bottom line and sustainable community principles.
