CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

McKesson has released its Corporate Citizenship Report for 2010. Highlights include a review of Community Days, the company’s annual employee volunteer event, in which more than 15,000 employees at 137 locations worked on projects supporting hospitalized military veterans. The report also features news about the mentoring of small, diverse, and veteran-owned businesses in how to work with Fortune 500 companies. McKesson’s Corporate Citizenship Report is organized by the Global Reporting Initiative’s G3 framework. McKesson is a sponsor of this broadcast.

The People’s Supermarket, a new coop store in Central London, reports sales increases of 20 percent over the past 30 days, despite tough economic times for U.K. food retailers. The store allows shoppers to reduce their environmental footprint by buying locally, and to lower their costs by becoming a member and volunteering to work in the coop. The People’s Supermarket was co-founded last year by eco-friendly chef Arthur Potts Dawson and former Marks & Spencer executive Kate Bull.
