Enhancing and diversifying the mix of information and opinion on Corporate Social Responsibility/Sustainability

(Springfield, MA--June 11, 2006) CSRwire, the newswire of corporate social responsibility (CSR), announced today the launch of its completely revamped website. The new site builds on CSRwire's existing strengths by broadening the spectrum of CSR-related information, opinion, links, blogs, experiments and interactive features.

Some of the new features include:

Reports by Innovest Strategic Value Advisors, a leading socially responsible investing (SRI) research firm, identifying environmental, social, and governance risks and strengths at over 1,750 companies.

Commitment to Transparency, through interactive dialogue, this new feature allows readers to add commentary on each press release. The commitment to transparency function is at the issuing company's discretion.

Increased Access to Company-Issued Sustainability Reports through a partnership with CorporateRegister.com, the most comprehensive resource of CSR reports globally.

"The new CSRwire website harnesses the primary strength of CSR--its diversity of opinion and data sources--to enable more informed decision-making on corporate sustainability," said Greg Schneider, Director of CSRwire. "Our new 'raw and unfiltered' tagline underscores our enhanced transparency, providing a 360-degree view of CSR."

CSRwire will also add new elements to its website going forward.

Some of the emerging features include:

Expanded Email News Alerts, when new content is posted, customizable by keyword, company, and category.

CSRwire Think Tank will be an ongoing project to increase communications between researchers, support the development of research centers devoted to responsible investment, call attention to important work, and spur new research agendas.

Public Policy will connect and demonstrate the impact of global public policy enacted and contemplated initiatives to individual companies and industries.

Activist Forum will connect and demonstrate the impact and response of campaigns by nongovernmental organizations to individual companies and industries.

Springfield Open Exchange will be a place to introduce, create, explore and collaborate on innovative and evolving financing mechanisms and economic models. The core of these mechanisms is the principles of triple bottom line returns and complete transparency throughout all business activities using the protocols of 'open source software developement'.

Multimedia Resources, including video, podcasts, and other media.

"If we all agreed to give greater value to economic models that improved more lives - we could. Some of these new features will allow for the development of models and mechanisms to support the next evolution of capitalism", said Joe Sibilia, President of CSRwire and Chairman of Meadowbrook Lane Capital.
