AUNE Wins Social Responsibility Honor

Antioch University New England (AUNE)has won the 2011 Cornerstone Award given by New Hampshire Businesses for Social Responsibility (NHBSR).

NHBSR is a business organization that promotes social responsibility in New Hampshire through education, networking, and promotion of sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR). The Cornerstone Award is presented each year to a company, organization, or individual that exemplifies the principles of corporate social responsibility and promotes those concepts in New Hampshire’s business community.

“NHBSR is honored to present the 2011 Cornerstone Award to Antioch University New England,” said Kate Luczko, NHBSR interim executive director. “[Antioch University New England] has been a long time engaged member of NHBSR and has demonstrated its commitment to corporate social responsibility. It continues to strive to do more and serves as a role model for other New Hampshire organizations to follow.”

In giving the award, NHBSR noted many collaborative efforts by AUNE’s students, faculty, and staff, including energy-saving initiatives in workspaces and the Community Garden Connections project, which is working to grow community gardens in Keene. It also noted projects to help businesses put CSR practices to work; Cool Monadnock, a three-year project to achieve significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions in the Monadnock region; and the 10% Challenge, a collaborative effort between AUNE and the City of Keene to help Keene businesses voluntarily reduce greenhouse gas emissions by ten percent.

The two other finalists for this year’s Cornerstone Award were Northeast Delta Dental and Sequoya Technologies Group. The award was announced at NHBSR’s eighth annual Spring Conference, held June 13 in Concord, New Hampshire.
