SAN FRANCISCO: Business Wire (BW) has entered into an agreement with CSRwire that allows BW clients to distribute news about their CSR efforts.
"We've been noticing the trend over the past two or three years of the importance of good corporate citizenship," said Michael Becker, director of global disclosure and financial reporting services for BW.
"If you look at any major corporation's website," he added. "there's a good chance you're going to see a section on corporate social responsibility."
Becker added that the decision to partner with CSRwire was not based on client requests, but rather a proactive step toward focusing on a growing trend. "We feel this is an important community that our clients would want to address," he said.
CSRwire reaches such media outlets as the AP, The Boston Globe, and The Washington Post.
