Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Tuesday, January 26th:

Silicon Valley’s Sustainable Business Institute hosted a Sustainable Business User Group meeting last week in Santa Clara. Applied Materials, a publicly traded company with revenues of over $5 billion dollars in 2009 and operations in 15 countries worldwide, presented its sustainability program to a group which included representatives from HP, WEBCOR, and Be Green Packaging. SBI has hosted a series of such sustainability-focused meetings for Silicon Valley professionals.

The supply chain company i2 Technologies has announced the release of the latest version of “i2 Supply Chain Strategist,” a software solution designed to optimize a company’s network. The new release adds major new features that include modeling and decision support, based on carbon emission constraints, carbon taxes, cap and trade structures, and sustainability measures. Companies in many business categories currently use i2 Supply Chain Strategist, including manufacturing, logistics, and retail.
