Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Tuesday, September 7th:

Corporations are helping Pakistan’s flood victims despite the “donor fatigue” following the massive relief effort for Haiti. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Business Civic Leadership Center is coordinating the private sector response with the U.S-Pakistan Business Council. Major donors of cash and services include UPS, Abbott, Bank of America, Toyota, Cisco, GE, Kraft, General Mills, Google, Honda, Pepsico, and Motorola. For a full list, go to uschamber.com.

The Blythe Solar Power Project has been issued a final Environmental Impact Statement by the Bureau of Land Management. The EIS is the last federal regulatory hurdle for the proposed solar power plant, which will have the capacity to produce 1,000 megawatts of electricity, enough to power 800,000 homes, making it the largest solar facility in the world. Solar Millennium, the Oakland-based developer, says it will take six years to complete the $6 billion project.
