DESCRIPTION:

Unilever has been awarded the 29th Annual Gold Medal for International Corporate Achievement in Sustainable Development by the World Environment Center. The WEC cited the company’s Sustainable Living Plan, a comprehensive strategy that addresses its governance, operations, and products, and also, its suppliers, distributors, and how consumers use its brands. Unilever’s projected, future bottom line is to cut its environmental footprint in half while doubling the size of its business.

Chrysler, Toyota, and GM are supporting the re-opening of the Detroit Science Center, which closed last year ago during the Motor City’s financial troubles. The re-named Michigan Science Center has received a $50,000 grant from the Chrysler Foundation, which has previously donated $4 million. The Toyota Technical Center has announced a $300,000 donation, and the GM Foundation has made a $1 million gift. The new Center opens to the public on December 26th.

Sigma-Aldrich has been named to The Civic 50, by Bloomberg, Points of Light, a volunteer organization, and the National Conference on Citizenship, which conducted the national survey. The Civic 50 ranks companies based on their community engagement and how they align their CSR practices with core business competencies. Sigma-Aldrich, a Life Science and High Technology company, was evaluated on its leadership, measurement and strategy, community partnerships, and transparency.
