CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Wednesday, June 2nd:

Bank of America has announced the first-year results of its 10-year, $1.5 trillion dollar community development goal to lend to and invest in underserved communities. Starting in 2009, BOA has provided $168 billion dollars in community development lending and investment, primarily benefiting low- and moderate- income communities and minority customers. The program focuses on four categories: affordable housing, small business, consumer lending, and economic development. It also includes $50 billion dollars dedicated to underserved rural and Native American communities. 

The Center for Sustainability has created a CSR Scorecard for the European Investment Bank. The innovative tool records the performance of the bank on CSR issues, relating its CSR objectives with measureable results that support the return-on-sustainability approach. Key multiple performance indicators for measuring CSR make up the Scorecard.
