CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Wednesday, June 16th:

Hitachi Consulting, the IT services company of Hitachi Limited, has joined the EPA’s Climate Leaders program. By participating, Hitachi commits to reduce its corporate-wide greenhouse gas emissions. The company’s long term goal is to become emission-neutral by 2015, and to help reduce global CO2 emissions in general by 100 million tons annually by 2025, through Hitachi manufacturing efficiencies, and more efficient use of Hitachi products. Climate Leaders is an EPA industry-government collaboration program to develop comprehensive climate-change policies. 

The National Business Travel Association’s Corporate Social Responsibility Committee has published a 62-page “toolkit,” a publication that outlines different areas of responsible travel procurement. The guidelines begin with methods to incorporate CSR into initial meetings to ensure sustainability. Tips range from requiring all invoices to be delivered electronically to requiring post-event reporting on the environmental impact of the meeting from all vendors.
