CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

Hello, I’m Gretchen Siegchrist, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Tuesday, July 6th:

Miller Coors has released its 2010 Sustainable Development Report. Among the highlights, the company reports that it now reuses or recycles nearly 100 percent of all brewery waste, and has eliminated 20 percent of the amount of waste sent to landfill. Miller Coors has renewed its commitment to the EPA’s Climate Leaders program, pledging to reduce corporate-wide greenhouse gas emissions by eight percent by 2015. The company has also set a goal of having 100 percent of its carriers join the EPA’s SmartWay program to reduce their transportation-related emissions. In 2009, 90 percent of its carriers were enrolled in the program. 

The Dutch microcredit foundation Qredits has won the European Microfinance Best Practices Award for 2010. The organization, started in 2008 by three Dutch banks, the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment, and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, lends up to 35,000 Euros to disadvantaged groups that have no access to traditional financial services. The organization is the only microfinance firm working in Holland, and has 510 borrowers with outstanding loans of nearly 10 million Euros.
