Microsoft continues it’s mission of empowerment by working to apply the power of technology to safeguard human rights and protect the planet. They recently issued their 2016 Corporate Social Responsibility Report.

During fiscal year 2016, Microsoft made progress on a number of fronts:

  • Expanding Microsoft’s commitment to sustainability by establishing new energy goals, including having data centers rely on a larger percentage of wind, solar and hydro power electricity over time.
  • Prioritizing inclusive design and accessibility in the development of products and services to empower everyone, while deepening the inclusive culture at Microsoft.
  • Enhancing companywide privacy principles and the Microsoft Privacy Statement to protect customers’ personal data and their right to privacy.
  • Holding suppliers accountable to human rights, labor, health and safety, environmental, and business ethics practices prescribed in Microsoft’s Supplier Code of Conduct.

  • Contributing to public policy discussions with a new book, “A Cloud for Global Good,” which lays out a roadmap of 78 specific policy recommendations to help ensure cloud computing is trusted, responsible and inclusive.

As part of Microsoft’s commitment to transparency, this report builds on the company’s prior annual citizenship reporting, but is now designed to be a living reporting website where Microsoft can offer both the year-over-year data we traditionally provide as well as ongoing updates throughout the year on important developments on our efforts.

Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. (Nasdaq: WBA) was recognized by The United Nations Foundation’s 2016 Global Leadership Awards for its commitment to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals through its support for wellbeing around the world. The award recognizes, in part, the accomplishments of Walgreens highly successful Get a Shot. Give a Shot.® initiative, which provides life-saving vaccines to children in developing countries through the Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign. Walgreens Boots Alliance’s Co-Chief Operating Officer Ornella Barra accepted the Global Leadership Award on behalf of the company.

One in five children worldwide lacks access to life-saving immunizations, and a child in a developing country dies every 20 seconds from a vaccine-preventable disease. Get a Shot. Give a Shot. donates a polio or measles vaccine to a child in need for every immunization administered at a Walgreens, Duane Reade or Healthcare Clinic location in the United States. The program has helped to provide more than 15 million vaccinations to countries such as Tanzania, East Timor and Chad since 2013.

Get a Shot. Give a Shot. is one of a range of programs that Walgreens Boots Alliance champions to improve health and wellbeing around the world. This month, through a partnership with Vitamin Angels, Walgreens reached its goal set two years ago of helping to provide 100 million children and mothers in at-risk populations with essential vitamins and minerals to help combat malnutrition.

Through a partnership with the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer, the company has funded a pan-European biobank for colorectal cancer to find new ways to treat this deadly disease. In addition, as the exclusive retailer of Red Nose Day in the United States, Walgreens has helped raise more than $31 million to benefit children’s health through Comic Relief USA. A partnership between Boots UK and Macmillan Cancer Support helps provide access to the best cancer information for patients and caregivers across the UK.

The American Airlines Do Crew, at Regan National Airport (DCA) are changing lives for some individuals on the autistic spectrum.

The Madison Fields Farm and Madison House Autism Foundation teach life skills and develop employment opportunities and increase housing options for adults on the spectrum to increase housing options.

“It became clear this cause had a touch point to many of our American Airlines families,” said Brandon Duggins, former manager on duty at Reagan National Airport and current general manager for American in Rochester, New York. “Many of us have a family member or a friend who have been faced with autism.”

American Do Crew employee volunteers have increasingly become involved with Madison House. In fact, American is the largest airline to join up with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority to sponsor local families through this organization.

“My godson is autistic,” said Renee Drayton, Premium Customer Service representative, DCA. “This cause is very near and dear to my heart. Plus, this is a lot of fun and such a beautiful place.”

Do Crew volunteers paint living quarters, clear horseback riding trails, build picnic tables

Because of the partnership with American, the farm is now home to an eight-acre corn maze in the shape of the American Airlines flight symbol.

The Maryland farm and corn maze also happens to be directly below the southbound flight path into Washington Dulles International Airport.

“We’re excited to share some of its beauty with our American Airlines volunteers, by land and by air,” said James Baird, Madison Field’s new farm director.

FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) has delivered more than 30 tons of emergency supplies in an effort to provide assistance to the people and communities affected by Hurricane Matthew.

FedEx supports these disaster relief efforts through its humanitarian organization relationships with Direct Relief, International Medical Corps and Heart to Heart International.

“The devastating reality is people in Haiti are relying on the delivery of humanitarian aid for life’s most basic necessities,” said Jenny Robertson, director of Global Citizenship and Reputation Management at FedEx. “The FedEx network and our people who power it are equipped to deliver these critical supplies where they’re needed most.”

FedEx has worked with Direct Relief for more than a decade to deliver medical resources during times of disaster. The organization’s aid filled a charter flight that took off from the Memphis World Hub and arrived in Port-au-Prince Wednesday, October 12. Supplies included medication, medical equipment, hygiene kits and tents that can be used as pop-up health facilities.

“Hurricane Matthew dealt a doubly cruel blow to Haiti, causing tragic loss of life and vastly increased risks and harm while at the same time damaging the health facilities and infrastructure critical to responding,” said Thomas Tighe, president and CEO, Direct Relief. “That’s why an aggressive, targeted response is so important and why FedEx’s leadership to take care of the transportation barrier is such a critically important step.”

A second charter flight landed in Haiti October 13, filled with 35,000 pounds of relief supplies from International Medical Corps and Heart to Heart International. Together with these two organizations, FedEx delivered 11,000 hygiene kits, medicines and medical supplies.

With many health facilities damaged, inaccessible, or non-functional as a result of Hurricane Matthew, the urgently needed aid will reach the most affected areas of Haiti, including Grand’Anse and Sud.

“FedEx’s swift action in the wake of Hurricane Matthew makes it possible for our teams to save lives and alleviate suffering in some of the hardest hit communities in Haiti,” said Nancy Aossey, president and CEO of International Medical Corps. “FedEx knows that speed saves lives, and that every hour counts. They are making it possible for our teams to deliver urgently needed supplies and bring lifesaving medical care to those in need, helping stop the spread of cholera—a disease that has the potential to be far deadlier than the storm itself.”

The relief effort is part of the company’s FedEx Cares initiative, through which FedEx will invest $200 million in more than 200 global communities by 2020 to create opportunities and deliver positive change around the world. FedEx is also a participant in iGive.com where a percentage of online orders can give back to your favorite cause.

It’s a fact that can seem shocking to the average American.  Worldwide, more than 650 million people – double the population of the United States – lack access to safe drinking water. Now, a team of specialists sponsored by Brita is setting out to design a potential XPRIZE that can solve that problem.

Brita, America’s leading water filtration brand, is sponsoring a team at the XPRIZE Visioneers 2016 Summit, presented by The Roddenberry Foundation. The Brita sponsored team’s challenge is focused on extending access to safe drinking water and ensuring people around the globe have information about the safety of their water supply. The challenge devised by the group also aims to help address economic challenges for low-income families when they are not able to use tap water. The Brita team, led by William Sarni, managing director and practice leader, water strategy, Deloitte Consulting LLP, includes one Brita research and development team member and other diverse specialists.

“By activating the wisdom of the crowd through incentive competitions such as XPRIZE, our team seeks to help solve the issue of safe drinking water, a problem that continues to persist, particularly in the developing world,” said Sarni. “I’m honored to lead this Brita-sponsored team to enable us to democratize access to safe drinking water and real-time water quality and quantity data.”

The Summit, which begins tomorrow, will bring together nine international teams that have been selected to design potential XPRIZE competitions that aim to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges in the areas of: water, cancer, ALS, empathy, nutrition, and housing.

XPRIZE is a nonprofit that designs and implements innovative competition models to solve the world’s grandest challenges. At the Visioneers 2016 Summit, the nine teams will present ideas for the next XPRIZE challenge to a group of 200 evaluators, including prominent CEOs, government leaders, innovators, philanthropists, and entrepreneurs. Collectively, this group will determine which concept or concepts become the next global XPRIZE competition.

“It’s unfathomable for many Americans to think about a world where you can’t just turn a handle and get clean, safe drinking water,” said Ed Huber, general manager of Brita. “Access to good water needs to be a fundamental human right and as a company that makes its living providing great tasting water to people in North America, we are excited to play our part in trying to make water insecurity a thing of the past, throughout the world.”

The XPRIZE Visioneers 2016 Summit will take place September 29 through October 2 in Los Angeles.

BJs Blood Donor Drive

BJ’s Wholesale Club is helping Boston Children’s Hospital’s (BCH) increase its registered donor base of blood donors by 5,000 through the end of this year.  Since March, more than 2,500 Massachusetts residents have registered as a blood donor through Boston Children’s Hospital – Bloodmobile drives, including stops at BJ’s Wholesale Club locations.

“Registering as a blood donor is an easy way to make a difference in the lives of children and families,” said Bob Eddy, chief financial officer of BJ’s Wholesale Club. “We thank every new registered donor and look forward to reaching our goal by the end of 2016.”

Across the United States more than 41,000 blood donations are used every day – that’s 1.23 million donations per month.  Locally, patients at BCH are in need of 24,000 blood transfusions each year, but that is more than three times the number of blood donations the Boston Children’s Hospital – Bloodmobile receives over the same period.
To help, local BJ’s locations will continue to host the Boston Children’s Hospital – Bloodmobile throughout the year.

In April 2014, BJ’s Charitable Foundation continued its ongoing support of BCH by donating $250,000 to support the Bloodmobile, which includes the following features:

  • A high-tech blood center in a 40-foot custom coach with all of the equipment available at the hospital-based blood center.
  • Outfitted with five-beds.
  • Ability for technicians to collect different blood components, such as red cells and platelets, for many different patient needs.

iGive.com partner Enterprise

Enterprise Rent-A-Car is teaming with the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) as a category sponsor of the 2017 Tourism for Tomorrow Awards. The annual WTTC awards are among the highest accolades in the global travel industry and represent the gold standard in sustainable tourism.

These awards recognize best practices and are based upon the principles of:

  • environmentally friendly operations;
  • support for the protection of cultural and natural heritage; and
  • the social and economic well-being of local people in travel destinations around the world.

For the second consecutive year, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is the exclusive sponsor of the WTTC’s People Award. This award honors organizations dedicated to the concept of “capacity building” – a long-term investment in the tourism workforce to enhance employee skills, competencies and abilities through local training and education.

“Travel and tourism careers already account for a significant part of our economy, providing an estimated 284 million jobs across the global market,” said Greg Stubblefield, executive vice president and chief strategy officer at Enterprise Holdings Inc., which owns the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand. “And we are committed to helping build an even more robust and inclusive global talent pipeline through this industry-leading WTTC initiative.”

Travel Industry Leadership

Enterprise Holdings’ annual revenues place it near the top of the global travel industry, exceeding all other rental car companies, as well as most airlines, cruise lines, hotels, tour operators and online travel agencies. In addition, Enterprise Holdings is the only company in the international car rental industry – and one of a handful in the global travel industry – to complete a sustainability report in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 “Core” Guidelines.

“As the world’s largest car rental company, we are in a strong position to help drive sustainable solutions and policies around the globe,” noted Stubblefield, who is a member of the WTTC as well as the U.S. Travel Association’s CEO Roundtable. He also serves on the U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board, which – as the advisory body to the U.S. Secretary of Commerce – provides counsel on current tourism industry concerns, emerging issues and government policies.

“Travel and tourism represents one of the fastest growing segments in the global economy, so it’s especially important that the growth of our sector is managed responsibly,” Stubblefield added. “The WTTC awards are an opportunity to honor organizations that benefit local communities, support cultural diversity and advance biodiversity conservation, all within a viable and profitable business model.”

Furthermore, the WTTC is working closely with the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), a United Nations agency responsible for the promotion of responsible, sustainable and universally accessible tourism. The WTTC and UNWTO are working together to improve the understanding of the importance of travel and tourism to social and economic development worldwide.

The WTTC’s Tourism for Tomorrow Awards recognize businesses and organizations whose commitments to sustainability and long-term vision have not only helped to shape international standards for environmentally and socially responsible tourism, but also have demonstrated how tourism can be a force for good. The extensive three-part application process begins with a written submission that is evaluated by an independent judging panel of sustainable tourism experts. Finalists are then visited on-site by experts who verify the claims made in their applications. Winners and finalists will be honored at a special Awards Ceremony during WTTC’s 2017 Global Summit April 25-27 in Bangkok, Thailand.

Applications for the 2017 Tourism for Tomorrow Awards are now open, and candidates will be able to apply until Nov. 14, 2016. For more information, visit www.wttc.org/tourism-for-tomorrow-awards.
