(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) Northampton, MA / New York, NY - November 22, 2010 - 3BL Media, the experts in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability communications, has recently launched CSRreport Special Edition: “CSR for Investors” on Reuters Insider. The 12-part video series will give an overview of how corporate social responsibility is affecting the bottom line of public companies, and how investors and traders need to include CSR in their decision-making. An initial segment focuses on how sell-side analysts are increasingly giving positive recommendations to companies with CSR strategies; the segment features a new study by professors from Harvard Business School and the London School of Business. Other segments will focus on specific sectors: banks and financial services (view video segment), energy, and consumer products, as well as CSR-specific practices, such as ratings and rankings, integrated reporting, and brand reputation management (view video segment).
The series has debuted exclusively on Reuters Insider, an interactive on-demand video platform designed to change the way financial professionals consume and distribute news, research and information. Reuters Insider combines in-depth commentary and analysis from Thomson Reuters with that from select content partners, and distributes this to over 550,000 financial professionals worldwide.
CSRreport Special Edition: “CSR for Investors” can be subsequently viewed on the 3BL Media CSR and Sustainability Channel on Reuters Insider and throughout the 3BL Media distribution network of affiliates, aggregators, portals, research databases, social networks and online communities.
“We are excited to work with Thomson Reuters as a content provider to Reuters Insider, and to bring ESG (environmental, social and governance) news and information to the worldwide financial community. The integration of CSR issues and impacts on the bottom line for companies is rapidly becoming integrated into decision making processes for investors and traders,” said Greg Schneider, co-founder and CEO, 3BL Media.
