This CSR minute is brought to you by BrownFlynn, a corporate responsibility and sustainability consulting firm, and the first US-certified training partner of the Global Reporting Initiative.
 
Timberland and The Disney Company have upgraded their membership levels in Social Accountability International to improve their supply chains. Timberland is now a Signatory member, and Disney an Explorer member, levels that offer greater access to S.A.I.’s supply chain management training, multi-stakeholder input, and the ability to benchmark their programs against those of other members. S.A.I. was established to advance the human rights of workers.
 
SC Johnson’s annual public report shows that the company met—and in many cases, exceeded—its sustainability goals for 2011. The report, “360 Degrees of Greener Choices,” records a reduction of GHG emissions by 27 percent, surpassing the company’s goal of 8 percent. SC Johnson also plans to build wind turbines at its largest worldwide manufacturing facility, which will enable the plant to produce 100 percent of its electrical energy on-site.
