CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

The USA Today Charitable Foundation and ConAgra Foods have launched a campaign to fight child hunger in the U.S. Through a program of learning activities - Child Hunger Ends Here - students, youth organizations, and clubs learn about child hunger; create a cause marketing plan to engage their communities to collect donations of food and funds; and submit the results of their plan in a national competition. Members of the winning student team and the teacher or sponsoring adult will each receive iPads. The project is open to all students in grades 7 through 12. 

A new report by professors from Harvard Business School and the London Business School concludes that High Sustainability businesses significantly outperform Low Sustainability firms, measured in both accounting and stock market terms. The study tracked the performance of 180 companies over 18 years. The 90 businesses that adopted environmentally and socially responsible policies outperformed their peers during that period, but, as the report notes, the outperformance occurs only in the long term.
