Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Tuesday, May 4th:
Forbes, the magazine of record for the mainstream global business community, has announced a new CSR blog. Frederick Allen, the Leadership Editor of Forbes, promises to bring together contributions from the best minds in CSR, with bloggers from business schools, nonprofits, consultancies, and companies. The blog will supplement Forbes’s corporate citizenship and leadership coverage.
The Global Reporting Initiative has announced public surveys of sustainability issues for the categories of construction and real estate, and of event organizers. The surveys are intended to address sector specific issues not covered in GRI’s general guidelines. All stakeholders are invited to submit feedback through an online survey at globalreporting.org, from now until August. The surveys will result in detailed reporting guidance for the two sectors. The Global Reporting Initiative has developed the most widely used Sustainability Reporting Framework adopted by companies and organizations worldwide.
