    Thanks for sharing this article–it’s really nice to focus on such innovative efforts! I just learned about Clif Bar’s 2080 Project which is another interesting initiative (http://www.good.is/posts/why-we-encourage-our-employees-to-skip-work-to-volunteer). Catchafire.org is also a great resource for any company looking to improve their CSR program–it is like the match.com for professionals who want to volunteer their time with high-impact non-profits.

    Unilever's approach is great, though I wonder how they are reaching out to the right communities of "solution-providers."

    The Domtar program is really cool. Can you imagine if everything we purchase had that level of transparency?

      Totally - it's super cool. I wonder how many people use it. That seems like a big missing link in CSR/sustainability/shared value - how successful are all these efforts? I mean PRP, which you and I worked on, was HUGE and still most of the articles written about it are incredibly uninformed because the data is either non-existent or confidential. How can we all learn if we don't really know what's happening?
