Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Tuesday, August 10th:

Laurent Auguste, president and CEO of Veolia Water, has been elected to the board of the Clean Water America Alliance. The CWAA, a nonprofit launched in 2008, focuses on water sustainability and improving public awareness of issues concerning water. Veolia Water is a provider of comprehensive water and wastewater services and technological solutions to municipal and industrial customers, and is the top global publisher of research works on water issues. 

Ernst & Young has released its 2010 Business Risk Report which includes Corporate Social Responsibility as #9 on its Top Ten Risk List. According to the advisory and accounting company, businesses must take more notice of public opinion and improve transparency and communications efforts, particularly on the subject of environmental impacts. Industries most at risk in the CSR category include asset management; banking; mining and minerals; and power and utilities. CSR made the Top 10 Risk List for the first time since E & Y began compiling the report.
