Hello, I’m Emily Polk and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Wednesday, March 10th:

The 12th L’Oreal-UNESCO For Women in Science Awards has recognized five exceptional women, one from each continent, for breakthroughs in scientific research. Over the past 12 years, the For Women in Science program has honored 62 Laureates and 864 Fellows, and has become an international reference for scientific excellence. Recently, 2008 Laureates Elizabeth Blackburn and Ada Yonath were awarded Nobel Prizes in Medicine and Chemistry.

Teletrips, a provider of Web-based assessment, management, and reporting tools for workplace sustainability, has released the latest version of its Commute Management and Reporting system. The software offers transparency and control over the financial, environmental, and social impacts associated with employee work locations and travel modes. In order to report on the cumulative triple bottom line, the system aggregates individual employee impacts, and feeds directly into CSR reporting efforts. Teletrips’s system is based on authoritative data sources, such as the World Resources Institute GHG Protocol, Transport Canada, and the EPA, making it a comprehensive input for regional and global sustainability indexes.
