Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Glaxo Smithkline (GSK) releases 2010 corporate responsibility report



The pharmaceutical giant Glaxo Smithkline has released its Corporate Responsibility Report for 2010 which you can access here:

In the past GSK has been targeted by animal rights activists who claim it is linked to the controversial animal testing labs at Huntingdon Research Centre, now known as Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS). In 2005 activists from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) infiltrated the labs and filmed staff punching and kicking the animals in their care. The footage was subsequently screened on British television. The company has also faced criticism over its product Avandia which one website describes as a 'killer drug' (http://truthman30.wordpress.com/2011/01/18/gsk-devoid-of-ethics/). It has also generated controversy over its activities in Puerto Rico (http://www.pharmalot.com/2011/01/glaxo-whistleblower-the-worst-thing-i-ever-saw/)
