Old corporate giving, 10 – 20 years ago: Decisions were made behind closed doors, among a small, select, close-knit group of people. New corporate philanthropy, often part of the CSR strategy: Decisions draw on the collective wisdom of diverse groups of people of all generations and backgrounds, including members of the global community being served, social innovators, customers, employees, and others. The vehicle: Crowdsourcing. The value: Good for business, and better funding decisions to improve communities and the world.

Stem-cell transplants, rigorous chemotherapy, clinical trials, hospitals – these sound like words you’d read in a medical textbook and, unless you’re a doctor, these are words most people would not want as part of their everyday vocabulary. But for Michelle Salerno, a patient of Loyola University Medical Center, these words were her life for seven years.

The thing is, eco awareness is gaining momentum, but not everybody knows exactly how to take the concept of going green and break it down into their day to day habits.

With Super Bowl XLV just around the corner, many advertisers and marketers are eagerly anticipating the airing of what is undoubtedly their largest advertising spend of the year— their commercials.

Stakeholder: defined as a group or an individual who, not only is affected by, but can also directly affect the actions of a company. Business stakeholders are often limited to the most obvious (i.e. investors, employees, suppliers customer, etc.).  The forgotten ‘community’ in which the business operates can oftentimes be overlooked as a key business sustainability stakeholder.

Straus Family Creamery President Says GM Alfalfa Could Ruin Organic Dairy Industry

Press Release from in Food & Farming
Feb 4, 2011 3:00 AM ET

(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) Marshall, CA - February 4, 2011 - As an organic farmer, I protest the USDA’s recent decision to approve the unregulated planting of genetically modified alfalfa. This is a ruling that seriously jeopardizes the integrity of the organic food chain, and could cause irreparable harm to organic farmers by ruining our ability to supply organic dairy foods to customers. I believe that allowing genetically modified alfalfa to be planted deprives consumers of their right to be certain that they are feeding organic foods to their families.

I know that some people don’t think that energy efficiency is very compelling, but there are a lot of astronauts who would disagree with that. In space, energy efficiency literally saves lives. When Apollo 13 lost electrical power, the astronauts’ survival came down to their ability to conserve enough energy to bring them back to Earth. After shutting down all “unnecessary” systems, how much power do you think they had? The equivalent of what it takes to run a coffee pot. Amazing.
