Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Thursday, October 14th:

IBM India has won the Golden Peacock Award for its CSR initiatives in India. IBM India is the first IT company to have received the country’s top CSR prize since the awards began in 2002. IBM India was cited for its Corporate Citizenship and Community Affairs initiatives that address business ethics, anti-harassment policies, child care services, home care, and environment management programs. IBM India was among 164 companies that applied for the Golden Peacock award this year.

Cenovus Energy, an integrated Canadian oil company, has been included in the 2010 Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index for Canada. Cenovus is one of 15 companies named at a CDP launch event held in Toronto to recognize leadership in the reporting of greenhouse gas emissions. The CDP, an independent nonprofit, conducts an annual survey of 4,700 of the largest companies in 60 countries to provide information on corporate greenhouse gas emissions. Cenovus has also been added to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index North America, one of five Canadian oil and gas producers named to the 2010 list of 120 companies.
