Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Thursday, April 29th:

FedEx has released its 2009 Citizenship Report. Among the highlights listed are an eight percent reduction in aircraft emissions, a 14 percent improvement in vehicle fuel efficiency, and maintaining charitable giving levels despite difficult business conditions, donating 1.5 percent of pre-tax profits to charity. The Report also introduces EarthSmart, a Fed Ex program to extend and formally organize sustainability efforts throughout the company. 

VolunteerMatch will open its annual summit meeting in Las Vegas, tomorrow. More than 65 leading corporate volunteer program specialists are expected to discuss best practices in employee and consumer volunteer engagement. The event, sponsored by MGM Mirage, a VolunteerMatch client, will include keynote speeches, seminars, workshops, and the presentation of the annual VolunteerMatch Champion of the Year and Corporate Volunteer Program of the Year awards.
