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

Suncor Energy has set four environmental goals for water use, reclamation, energy efficiency, and air emissions, outlined in the company’s 2010 Report on Sustainability. The targets include reducing fresh water consumption 12 percent, increasing reclamation of disturbed land area 1000 percent, improving energy efficiency 10 percent, and cutting air emissions 10 percent, all by 2015. Suncor is also developing renewable energy sources. Its four Canadian wind farms generated a capacity of 147 megawatts in 2009, and the company operates one of Canada’s largest ethanol production facilities, which delivers 200 million liters of ethanol annually.

The H.E. Butt Grocery company’s Help End Hunger program has raised $80,000 for the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. The money was raised through a tear-off coupon campaign at area HEB stories in May and June. Customers could choose to add $1, $3, or $5 to their grocery bill as a donation. The money raised equals 240,000 meals for Austin’s hungry families.
