The Sustainability Consortium has announced the appointment of Bonnie Nixon as its Executive Director. Nixon was formerly Hewlett Packard’s Director of Environmental Sustainability. The Consortium was initiated by Walmart, and its board includes representatives from that company, as well as Pepsico, Proctor & Gamble, Dell, and the Walt Disney Company, and from Arizona State University and the University of Arkansas. Its mission is to build a scientific foundation to improve consumer product sustainability.

Fifteen Cornwall, the U.K. restaurant inspired by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, has celebrated its fifth anniversary as a successful triple bottom line business. It has graduated 61 employees into the workforce, served 400,000 meals, and grossed 15 million pounds in revenue.

The commercial restaurant enterprise is also supported by the Cornwall Foundation of Promise.
