Nike has received top honors for its sustainability reporting at the annual Ceres conference, held last week in Oakland. The company was cited for its detailed presentation of sustainability data, its buy-in from top executives, and its transparent handling of the challenges faced by the company in establishing more sustainable operations. Ceres, a nonprofit that connects business partners, investors, and nonprofits on issues of climate change, gave out the award in partnership with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

Campbell’s has released its second CSR report, titled “Nourishing: Consumers, Neighbors, Employees, Planet.” The report details gains made by the company in making healthier products. Over 90 Campbell soups are now offered at “healthy sodium levels,” 85 products are certified by the American Heart Association, and over 100 products are approved by Canada’s Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Health Check program. Overall, the report described decreases in Campbell’s water use and greenhouse gas emissions from 2008 to 2009, but increases in energy use and waste disposal.
