CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

Justmeans has launched Insights, a data visualization platform for measuring, managing, and comparing sustainability performance. Insights will allow large and mid-cap companies to measure material CSR-ESG indicators against their peers by analyzing 140 data points. The initial launch features information about companies in three industries: pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, and computers and peripherals. Justmeans is a wholly owned subsidiary of 3BL Media.

Bank of America has announced a rollback of its proposed $5 monthly debit card fee, due to intense consumer backlash. Banks had argued that recent Federal Reserve regulations that limit the fees retailers pay banks for the use of credit cards required them to raise revenue through such added charges. No other major bank had joined BofA in proposing a debit card fee. New, additional bank fees have been a major focus of the Occupy Wall Street protestors, who have drawn public attention to the practice.
