Hello, I’m Gretchen Siegchrist, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Thursday, July 15th:

Whole Foods Market is the only major retailer to offer Marine Stewardship Council-certified, fresh, harpoon-caught swordfish from Nova Scotia this summer. MSC has strict standards and rigorous third-party certification to ensure sustainable fishing of the species. This week, home cooks can enter original swordfish recipes for a chance to win $100 to $1,000. Details are at wholefoodsmarket.com.

British Polythene Industries, BPI, has been awarded a Certificate of Inclusion for the FTSE4Good Index for the ninth consecutive year.

Created by the FTSE Group to help investors make ethical investment choices, the Index measures the CSR policies of businesses against globally recognized standards. BPI is Europe’s largest manufacturer of polythene films, bags, and sacks.
