Feb. 16 /CSRwire/ - SPRINGFIELD, MA. - February 16, 2009 - This week CSRwire welcomed Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Green Technology, Renewal2 Investment Fund, The National Park Trust, The Clorox Company, International Institute for Sustainable Development, PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics, and AngelPoints.

CSRwire membership of more than 1000 organizations includes public and privately held companies, socially responsible investment funds, non governmental and non profit organizations, universities, trade associations and think tanks. The following organizations will be using CSRwire to communicate their corporate citizenship, sustainability, and socially responsible activities and initiatives to a passionate and enthusiastic audience in over 200 countries.

ACCA - The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is the global body for professional accountants. We aim to offer business-relevant, first-choice qualifications to people of application, ability and ambition around the world who seek a rewarding career in accountancy, finance and management.

We support our 122,000 members and 325,000 students throughout their careers, providing services through a network of 80 offices and centres. Our global infrastructure means that exams and support are delivered – and reputation and influence developed – at a local level, directly benefiting stakeholders wherever they are based, or plan to move to, in pursuit of new career opportunities.

Green Technology - Green Technology is a non-profit initiative designed to inform government efforts toward sustainability, providing a forum in which government officials can communicate with those in the private sector who are developing and distributing green technologies.

With headquarters in California, Green Technology is ideally situated to stay on the leading edge. California, with the world's eighth-largest economy, is setting the standard for state support for green technologies.

With mandates for green building, renewable energy and "environmentally preferable" purchasing, California has made an unequalled commitment to a green future.

Renewal2 Investment Fund - Renewal2 is a social venture fund that builds upon 15 years of experience in successful high-impact investing. We are raising capital for the development of underfunded sectors that are critical to a sustainable economy. We support scalable businesses that can generate attractive profits.

Our goal is a portfolio of 15-20 deals split between the U.S. and Canada. Our team will manage investments in our region and close networks. We intend to co-invest with leading colleague funds in other regions. Renewal2 sector focus is on businesses that produce everyday products and services in new and innovative ways. We believe that great strides towards a Solutions Economy will be made as we collectively change the way we live our lives, the food we eat and how we build.

The National Park Trust - The National Park Trust is a nonprofit 501c3 organization. NPT is the nation's only organization dedicated to the completion, and the full appreciation, of the American system of National and State Parks through the identification of key land acquisition needs and opportunities, the convening of potential funders to acquire these lands, as well increasing efforts to ensure that future generations appreciate and experience this national heritage.

The Clorox Company - At Clorox, we believe that the long-term health of our company depends on maintaining high standards of business conduct, integrity, safety, quality and respect for people and the environment in everything we do. Our corporate social responsibility principles reflect a deep commitment to uphold these standards. We've made this commitment to our shareholders, business partners, communities and each other because, in many instances, our standards demand more from us than what is legally required, and because it's the right thing to do.

International Institute for Sustainable Development - The world is challenged by a changing climate, biodiversity loss, abject poverty and environmental degradation. What can make a difference? Good ideas. Creativity. Passion. Innovation. The achievement of change.

IISD is in the business of promoting change towards sustainable development. As a policy research institute dedicated to effective communication of our findings, we engage decision-makers in government, business, NGOs and other sectors in the development and implementation of policies that are simultaneously beneficial to the global economy, the global environment and to social well-being.

In the pursuit of sustainable development, we promote open and effective international negotiation processes. And we believe fervently in the importance of building our own institutional capacity while helping our partner organizations in the developing world to excel.

Established in 1990, IISD is a Canadian-based not-for-profit organization with a diverse team of more than 150 people located in more than 30 countries. Through our dynamic portfolio of projects, we partner with more than 200 organizations throughout the world. To learn more about our history, please visit the IISD Timeline.

The Institute receives project funding from numerous governments inside and outside Canada, United Nations agencies, foundations, the private sector and individual donors.

PeaceKeeper's eco-safe cosmetics sells in over 500 retail stores including 130 Whole Foods.
