Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Wednesday, June 30th:

BNP Paribas, the French bank, has presented two awards for the second time at its Philanthropy and Sustainable Development Event. The Grand Prix was awarded to the Chagnon family for its foundation, that supports the development of children in Quebec, Canada by promoting education and a healthy lifestyle. The Prix Special was awarded to Chung Too for his commitment to children affected by AIDS in Central China. His Chi Heng Foundation has helped 12,000 children in 200 villages. BNP Paribas Wealth Management is one of the first private banks to offer a philanthropic service for its clients. 

A new survey of CEOs by the United Nations Global Compact and Accenture has found that 93 percent see sustainability as crucial to their future success. The report, “A New Era of Sustainability,” surveyed more than 750 chief executives from almost 100 countries. Of these, 72 percent said that strengthening their brand,  trust, and reputation with consumers was the primary drive behind sustainability initiatives. 81 percent said their companies have fully embedded sustainability issues in the strategy and operations of their companies.
