Hello, I’m Gretchen Siegchrist, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Friday, April 23rd:

Fullbloom Baking Company has become the first LEED Platinum Certified private label bakery in the country. Platinum certification is the highest level of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design award offered by the US Green Building Council. The bakery’s 95,000 square foot food manufacturing plant, bought by the company in 2006, was retrofitted over two years with upgrades in water and energy efficiency, the use of eco-friendly materials, and design innovations built around environmental operations. Fullbloom has been making all natural bakery products for leading brands since 1989. 

The jewelry industry has a new CSR program, offered by the World Jewelry Confederation Education Foundation. The four-day CSR Course will enable companies in the jewelry and gemstone sector to adopt CSR practices into the operations of an international industry with sources in developing countries. The program was organized by a team of United Nations-sanctioned CSR experts from the University of Geneva, the University of St Michael’s College at the University of Toronto, and MHC International.
