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

Globe Telecom was a winner at the Second Global Corporate Social Responsibility Awards held in Singapore. Globe won a Gold award in the Best Work Place Practices category for its disaster response initiative to provide aid in the aftermath of several typhoons last year. The company also won a Bronze award for the Best Environmental Excellence Award for its Globe Goes Green campaign. Organized by The Pinnacle Group International, the Global CSR Awards honors companies for outstanding, innovative, and world class products, services, and programs implemented as part of corporate and CSR strategy.

The Association of American Railways has announced its support for a new report issued by the Economic Policy Institute and the BlueGreen Alliance. The BlueGreen Alliance is a coalition of labor and environmental groups that includes the United Steel Workers, The Sierra Club, the Communications Workers of America, the National Resources Defense Council, and the Service Employees International Union. The report calls for more investment in railway improvements that create green jobs. It finds that freight rail reinvests more than other industries in infrastructure improvements for energy-saving alternative transportation. As a result, the report concludes, the new partnership forged by labor, environmental groups, and the wind power industry could become a force in a new energy future for the U.S.
