CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Friday, May 28th:

Pax World, an investment management firm which launched the first SRI fund in 1971, has launched the ESG Shares North America Sustainability Index. The index comprises equity securities of issues in North America.  It will be benchmarked against the FTSE KLD North America Sustainability Index, created and operated by KLD Research and Analytics. 

The University of Washington has authorized a Campus Sustainability Fund for the school with an allocation of $340,000 dollars. The campaign to establish the CSF was driven by 52 student organizations. The Fund will be overseen by a seven-student committee. Proposed projects include a campus farm, renewable energy installations, and sustainable educators in residence halls.
