Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Friday, October 29th:

Dow Chemical Company has announced the winners of its second annual Sustainability Innovation Student Challenge program last week at Tufts University. The program recognized 41 winning students from partner universities in the U.S. and around the world for their work to provide sustainable solutions to pressing social economic, and environmental problems. The event included a sustainable science demonstration, which featured representatives from Dow, Sustainability Innovation Student Challenge Winners, and Beyond Benign, a not-for-profit organization that promotes education about sustainable science among students of all ages.

BNP Paribas, Europe’s largest bank measured by deposits, has set up a 10-member India Advisory board to direct the bank’s India investment strategy and to advise BNP on CSR efforts. BNP projects its revenues in India to double in the next five to ten years, due to the high growth rate of the Indian economy, more than twice world average. The advisory board will give insight into India’s financial needs and provide a wider understanding of the country’s fast-changing economic trends so that CSR practices will be properly aligned with financial activities.
