Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Wednesday, December 15th:

Cenovus Energy has released a new corporate responsibility policy that commits the company to a CSR-driven strategy. With feedback from both employees and industry experts, the Canadian integrated oil company identified its key issues as integrity, ethics, transparency, and accountability. Cenovus uses the Global Reporting Initiative’s guidelines, and aligns its performance metrics with standards set by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.

UKFast, a British IT hosting company, has announced that it is carbon neutral in its data centers and offices, making it the first certified 100 percent carbon neutral hosting company in the U.K. The claim is based on achieving the PAS 2060 certification published by the British Standards Institution. Data centers are one of the largest sources of IT carbon emissions.
