Cleanweb Hackathon Kicks Off This Weekend

[fa icon="calendar'] Jan 19, 2012 3:00:00 AM / by CSRHub Blogging

CLeanwebCSRHub is pleased to announce its bronze-level sponsorship of the Cleanweb Hackathon. The Cleanweb Hackathon is a weekend-long competition that is bringing cleantech to the masses with web apps that optimize resource use. Over the course of the event, which kicks-off Friday, January 20 and goes until Sunday, teams of two or more will compete to come up with the most user-friendly and effective cleanweb apps that will help consumers and businesses use natural resources more efficiently.


Cleanweb speaks to the growing shared space between info tech, clean web, entrepreneurship, social media, mobile technologies, and sustainability. The New York event builds of the success of the inaugural San Francisco event that drew over 100 participants this fall. Fourteen new cleanweb applications were developed as part of the first conference and some are already on the market.


The Cleanweb Hackathon will take place at the New York University Tisch School of of the Arts Interactive Telecommunications Program campus in Brooklyn, New York. As a proud sponsor, CSRHub will be there. Follow the event with CSRHub on Twitter.

CSRHUB Gets a Tune-Up: APIs and Company Websites

[fa icon="calendar'] Oct 10, 2011 9:31:51 AM / by CSRHub Blogging

6168504404_1b6a322ac7_b Over the last two months, the CSRHUB team has quietly added new features to our website.  One, which we think you’ll especially like, is a direct link to the CSR area of company websites.

About 45% of the around 5,000 companies we track have added this kind of info to their corporate websites and we want all of our registered users to have access to these reports too. Visit any CSRHUB company page, and you'll now have access to that company's CSR website (if it has one), located just below the link to its main site. If you're a pro subscriber, you can also export these sites for any list of companies you've already put together in the CSRHUB database, using our XML tool. Just put the CSR website into your list layout and click the red XML button.

We’ve also released a new version of our RESTful API.  For all you geeks out there, that means that professional subscribers can now get an API key that allows them to do JSON calls. (Say those words to your development team and you’ll see a big smile.)  We've also added training videos to our advanced search help page, and given subscribers access to even more sustainability data than before. We now aggregate 125 sources of data with 3 million data elements.

There's lots more in the works, but we’d love to hear suggestions from you about how to improve CSRHUB. Send us an idea at ideas@csrhub.com and we’ll send you back a coupon that will give you 40% off your next subscription or report purchase.
