Macy’s has announced two new sustainability partnership initiatives. Working with ECOtality, Macy’s will support the use of self-serve electric vehicle charging stations by installing EV charging stations outside Macy’s stores in San Diego. The charging stations will provide an added convenience to EV drivers and promote the transition to clean, renewable energy. Also, Macy’s has become a Recyclebank Rewards Partner, rewarding customers for taking everyday green actions with discounts and special deals.

Cermaq, an international group of companies active in the farming of salmon and trout, has released its sustainability record for 2010. The company reports zero escapes, good fish health with minor use of medicines, and more efficient use of marine raw materials. Cermaq’s report was audited at the Global Reporting Initiative’s B+ level. Headquartered in Oslo, the company maintains operations in Chile, Canada, and Scotland, as well as Norway.
