New Belgium Brewing reports a seven percent sales increase in its craft beer brands for 2011. The company operates on a sustainable business model, with ownership and decision-making shared among its 425 workers. New Belgium also pays 100 percent of health insurance premiums and matches 401(k) contributions. Its charitable giving includes donations of $700,000 this year, and it is the first brewery to commit to wind energy and to recycle its brewing waste into fuel. 

Five Oregon tree farms have signed up for a new sustainability program for Christmas tree farms. The trees will bear a tag identifying their origin as a Socially and Environmentally Responsible Farm—SERF. To be certified, a farm must develop a plan that addresses five areas of social and environmental health: biodiversity, soil and water resources, integrated pest management, worker health and safety, and consumer and community relations.
