Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Wednesday, May 26th:

RONA, Canada’s largest distributor and retailer of hardware, renovation, and gardening products, is supporting the new agreement between members of the Forest Products Association of Canada—FPAC—and nine leading environmental organizations for sustainable management of 72 million hectares of Canada’s Boreal Forest. Many of FPAC’s 21 members are RONA suppliers. RONA notes that the aims of the Canadian Boreal Forest  Agreement  are similar to those of the company’s Wood Products Procurement Policy, which mandates that 100% of the softwood lumber sold in its stores has to come from forests certified under Forest Stewardship Council standards. 

The Make the DASH Count Foundation has started its second area board, the 495 Hopkinton Youth Board, to serve the greater Boston area. Make The DASH Count is a national nonprofit designed to teach young people about philanthropy through direct experience. Since its founding in 2002, the foundation has distributed over $210,000 through its Youth Board members to more than 55 non-profit organizations serving at-risk youth. Youth Boards now serve the Seattle area in Washington as well as the Boston region.
