Impressive internal environmental stewardship, efficient nonprofit partnerships that foster community outreach and effective CSR communications efforts propel Minneapolis-based Carmichael Lynch Spong to the top in CRS practices by a PR firm. CLS’ internal environment actions are sweeping: utilization of 100% wind-sourced power; the use of sustainable office products; energy-efficient lighting and commuter incentive benefits are just a few of these efforts.
In the community, CLS partners with Sharing & Caring Hands, a homeless shelter, to serve meals. For the past two summers, CLS has led a joint-agency food drive, Grub Round-Up, which helped collect more than 2,000 pounds of food and $3,000 in donations in 2009.
Naturally, CLS lends its communications expertise to assist nonprofit groups that help those in need. This work included helping American Humane raise awareness of the link between violence to animals and violence to women and children, and advocating for a livable wage and improved workplace conditions in developing nations for Fair Trade Certified. â–
