Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Monday, March 1st:

Amerigroup was named the 2010 Overall Leader in CSR Practices by PR News last week. The award was presented at PR News’ annual awards event that recognizes corporations for outstanding CSR campaigns in 30 different categories. Amerigroup was honored for its “Real Caring” initiative, a company-wide campaign supporting employee volunteerism, and its “Real Solutions in Healthcare” campaign that outlines its programs to its customers. Amerigroup works with clients of publicly funded health care programs.

The first Global Reporting Initiative training in the United Arab Emirates was held last week in Dubai. The event outlined the practices of sustainability reporting using GRI standards for representatives from six companies of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Group. Participants included directors and managers in the areas of CSR, human resources, and communications. The session was organized by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Center for Responsible Business, and sponsored by the Emirates Foundation for Philanthropy.
