Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Monday, December 13th:

Target has released its commitment to sustainability in a report that outlines the retailer’s expanded plans for a sustainable strategy. Target’s eco-friendly initiatives include expanding the selection of sustainable product choices, creating more energy-efficient buildings, and reducing waste.

The Network for Business Sustainability has released a new report, “Embedding Sustainability in Organizational Culture.” The study summarizes data from more than 13,000 academic and industry sources into a how-to guide for senior-level CSR and HR executives on creating and maintaining a CSR culture within a business. According to a 2010 Accenture global survey, 93% of CEO’s say sustainability is key to their future success. The Network for Business Sustainability, a Canadian non-profit, commissioned the report, written by Dr. Stephanie Bertels, an assistant professor at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia.
