Women in CSR: Aman Singh, CSRwire

AmanSingh_newpicTriplePundit: Briefly describe your role and responsibilities, and how many years you have been in the business.

Aman Singh: I am the Editorial Director at CSRwire. I lead content distribution, social media strategy – for clients and our own – CSR/sustainability reporting services and other editorial functions, including managing CSRwire’s commentary section Talkback. I have worked with Fortune 500 companies as well as the country’s leading nonprofits and academic institutions on creating and implementing communication strategies focused on stakeholder engagement and behavior change, including Unilever, Verizon, SAP, ARAMARK, Campbell Soup, Sodexo, EarthShare, Points of Light and others.

I am a student of journalism and started my career right after graduating from high school at Tehelka, a website based out of New Delhi, India, that at that time was known for its investigatory exposes and cutting-edge reporting. Along the way, I’ve worked at myriad outlets including ABC News, The Villager, Downtown Express and The Wall Street Journal. So I’ve been in the “business of writing and editing” for over 15 years. But I turned my focus to CSR and sustainability during the 2008 recession when things were crumbling around us economically and responsibility – both corporate and personal – seemed in short supply. Since then I have written for numerous publications including Forbes, Bloomberg, CNBC, The Vault, Greenbiz, and TriplePundit.

A Recipe for Award Winning Sustainable Wine: Mix Vision with Equal Parts Passion & Courage

Southbrook Vinyards - Award Winnig Sustainable WIne from Niagara, Ontario

Southbrook Vineyards – Award Winning Sustainable Wine from Niagara, Ontario

“I hate the word sustainability.” This is how Bill Redelmeier, Owner of Southbrook Vineyards, began his presentation to the Toronto Sustainability Speaker Series (TSSS) on November 27, 2013. It’s not that Redelmeier doesn’t believe in the principles that many of us would attach to sustainability; he believes passionately in the importance of long-term well-being in economic, ecological, community and social dimensions.  What frustrates Redelmeier is the lack of third party certification and oversight for most sustainability claims, explaining, “It can be claimed by anyone for any particular reason.”
