Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Friday, December 10th:

Oregon’s Dungeness crab fishery has become the world’s first major crab fishery to be certified “sustainable” under standards set by the Marine Stewardship Council. It will be the only West Coast crab fishery bearing the blue MSC eco-label. Oregon is the top producer of Dungeness crab worldwide, with a harvest valued at $45 million dollars last year, making it the state’s most valuable single species fishery.  The MSC is an international nonprofit set up to promote solutions to the problem of overfishing.

The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship has opened registration for its 2011 conference, to be held in April in Minneapolis. A special feature of the annual event will be a focus on the long-standing tradition of corporate citizenship practiced by businesses such as Best Buy, CenterPoint Energy, General Mills, Target, and many others. Best Buy is the convening sponsor for the conference, which is expected to draw over 500 business leaders, policy makers, and CSR professionals.
