Sustainability Reporting Doubled in 2012

According to the recent Governance & Accountability Institute’s 2012 Corporate ESG/ Sustainability/Responsibility Report, the percentage of S&P 500 companies that reported on their sustainability strategies, initiatives, programs and performance has more than doubled, growing from 19 percent in 2011 to 53 percent in 2012 (reporting among Fortune 500 companies grew from 20 percent in 2011 to 57 percent in 2012). With more than 50 percent of this important group of companies reporting, those that do not report will feel increasing pressure to do so in the future. Click here for more information.

Call for Nominations for Oracle Excellence Awards: Eco-Enterprise Innovation - Due July 15

Is your organization using an Oracle product to lower its environmental footprint while reducing costs? For example, you may use Oracle’s Agile Product Lifecycle Management to design more eco-friendly products, Oracle Transportation Management to reduce fleet emissions, Oracle Exadata Database Machine to decrease power and cooling needs while increasing database performance, Oracle Business Intelligence to measure environmental impacts, or one of many other Oracle products. Your company may be eligible for an Oracle Excellence Award:  Eco-Enterprise Innovation. Submit a nomination form located here by July 15 if your organization is using any Oracle product to take an environmental lead as well as to reduce costs and improve its business efficiencies by using green business practices. These awards will be presented during Oracle OpenWorld 2013 (September 22-September 26) in San Francisco.

Either a customer or its partner can submit the nomination form on behalf of the customer. Winners will be selected based on the extent of the environmental impact they have had as well as the business efficiencies they have achieved through their combined use of Oracle products. To be eligible for this award, your company must use at least one of Oracle’s products and the solution should be in production or in active development.

These awards will be presented to the winning customers and their partners during Oracle OpenWorld by a senior Oracle executive and will be honored in a special Oracle OpenWorld conference session. Winning customers will receive a free Oracle OpenWorld registration pass and will have the opportunity to participate in Oracle media opportunities. See last year's winners here.
