Hello, I’m Gretchen Siegchrist, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Tuesday, July 20th:

Lenovo has been chosen as one of 30 charter companies to be a charter stock of the Hang Seng Corporate Sustainability Index Series, the first index of its kind to focus exclusively on Hong Kong and mainland China. Lenovo was chosen because it has performed strongly according to the corporate sustainability criteria used to define the Index. The new Index will serve as a reference tool for the investment community and the general public as a benchmark for socially responsible investments.

American Medical Response has won a 2010 International “Stevie” Award for Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year in North America. The winning program, “Sentimental Journey,” was created by AMR caregivers at the company’s El Paso County operation in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It works with local hospice providers to help terminally ill patients and family members fulfill last wishes on day trips to locations chosen by the patient. AMR also won a “Stevie” in 2009 for its Home for the Holiday program. Sponsored by the International Business Awards, the “Stevie,” named for the Greek word “crowned,” will be presented to winners this September, at a dinner in Istanbul, Turkey.
