CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

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

Chiquita Brands has reviewed its 20 year relationship with the Rainforest Alliance and the Sustainable Agriculture Network, to help identify areas of improvement on Chiquita’s banana farms. Among the joint efforts are crop management practices minimizing agrichemical use. Future plans include a partnership with the Massachusetts Institue of Technology to survey the carbon footprint of the banana production and supply chain, to plan how to reduce carbon emissions as bananas are moved from farms to consumers’ tables.

Blue Practice, a marketing and PR firm, has been ranked 12th in the nation for environmental public relations by O’Dwyer’s magazine. It is the first time Blue Practice has been named to the publication’s Top 20 list in its four years as a boutique agency. The rankings, based on overall billings for the Environment PR and Public Affairs category, appear in the May issue of the public relations industry magazine.
