CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Tuesday, August 17th:

Marks & Spencer, the British retailer, has given its Plan A farming award to Bananito, a Dole Food Company farm located in Costa Rica. The Plan A farming award recognizes farmers and growers who are taking steps to improve the sustainability of their business. Bananito is a Dole farm that supplies Marks & Spencer as well as other customers. This year, the application process was open for the first time to non-United Kingdom farmers.

The National Business Travel Association has published its updated Corporate Social Responsibility Toolkit. The 2010 edition includes two new reference guides on Responsible Groups and Meetings and Technology Solutions. The new version provides a more detailed examination of CSR in corporate travel and the resources needed to implement CSR within a company’s travel programs.
