SAP, the software company, has released its latest quarterly sustainability update. Among its highlights, SAP decreased emissions from heating and other stationary combustion in its facilities by 24 percent. Despite an increase in emissions of six percent over first quarter 2010, caused by a five percent increase in employees and increased air travel, the company is still on track to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to year-2000 levels by 2020. SAP reports savings of 170 million Euros from 2008 to date through its sustainability initiatives.

The Business Civic Leadership Center has opened nominations for its 2011 Corporate Citizenship Awards. Applications will be accepted in four categories: Best Business Neighbor, Best International Ambassador, Best Partnership, and Best Corporate Steward. Past winners include Abbott, Best Buy, Deloitte, and PwC. Nominations will be accepted until June 24th, and awards will be given out at the annual BCLC dinner in November. BCLC is a nonprofit affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
