Global CSR Leaders Bring Passion, Celebration to BSR conference; 'Greening of Studio54' party


By Jack Wysocki It doesn't seem possible that over a month has gone by since all those great minds were collected in New York City at the Business for Social Responsibility Conference. With all the trouble brewing in the world, the focus was and will be on sustainable business practices. I am always amazed at the passion that comes from that audience of global corporate leaders. With all the hard work and brainstorming going on, CSRwire and Intertek Sustainability Solutions were very happy to cosponsor a celebration of progress in responsible consumption and production to offer some respite from the busy schedule, and add a touch of very casual networking opportunities. The venue was the the Studio54 VIP lounge and with the design help of E.B.Moss of Moss Appeal was returned to its former glory. “Greening of Studio54” was the theme of the evening. This effort was supported by the generous offerings of Michael Dwork from www.Verterra.com with his compostable plates. Another hero of the evening was Paul Davis, president of Maison Jomere Ltd. who sent us cases of the ever so tasty organic spirits Juniper Green Gin and UK5 Vodka. The real heroes of the evening were all those in attendance who are passionate about changing the world for the next generations. The Studio54 venue was truly incredible. Joe Sibilia, president of CSRwire said: “Where else could you find an ambassador to a Central American country, a TV network anchor man, a morning show producer, and the captains of industry from all over the world disco dancing in the same place? ” This party could never have happened without Andre Raghu, and the extra hard work and patience of Bella Fonseca, of Intertek- Sustainability Solutions, and their whole team. I applaud them and am thankful for the close relationship we share. We're still getting emails from everywhere thanking us for such a fine time. The pressure is on. What are we going to do next year? Maybe the planning should start now? In the mean time, we at CSRwire wish everybody a happy holiday and a healthy new year! Here's to an even better 2009.
