Societe Generale has launched its first Socially Responsible Investment Exchange Traded Note on the London Stock Exchange. The SRI ETN tracks 25 SRI stocks on a one-for-one basis, combining ESG metrics with financial and stock performance data to identify one company in each of 25 different sectors considered to be the leader in that sector for ESG management. All fees for managing the SRI ETN will be donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust, Societe Generale’s U.K. Charity of the Year, as chosen by its employees.

Coca-Cola is asking retailers to return or recycle new, in-store beverage shelves to increase sustainability in its operations. The “Give It Back” racks are free-standing units made of 100 percent recyclable corrugated cardboard. The displays are the first step in Coke’s initiative to build a closed-loop retail equipment program. Now undergoing testing in select markets, the recyclable beverage racks are expected to become widely available later this year.
