Shanghai Roots & Shoots' Eco-audit Program Ranks Crown Shanghai No.1

Online PR News – 14-September-2009 – – The Crown Worldwide Group, a worldwide leader of global mobility, moving services, relocation services, document management, art shipping and logistics transportation earned the highest score of the most recent 45 audits completed by the Roots & Shoots Eco-Office Evaluation program.

Crown Shanghai was audited and received excellent scores in the areas of resource consumption and environmental practices and policies--scoring 91 percent out of a possible 100 percent. This result is even more significant because it was Crown's first audit.

The eco-audit evaluation program was developed by Shanghai Roots & Shoots (R&S)--a program established in 1991 to educate the youth about environmental issues and humanitarian values. It links local high school and university students with various companies to perform environmental audits of the companies' policies and processes. The group evaluates individual company's practices, and calculates the environmental impact.

Dominica Darrington, client and community relationship manager for Crown Shanghai, in charge of the branch's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, said: "This program is another way of measuring and continually improving our environmental practices and policies, and developing concrete targets and strategies for positive change. Our office can play an important role in educating our employees about sustainable environmental practices and it's our hope that the green efforts made by the group trickles down to individual employee's households, to influence the attitudes and behaviors of their families, neighbors and friends."

Since its inception in 2006, Shanghai's Roots & Shoots' program has audited over 120 companies. In 2008, they expanded the program to Beijing, where an additional 12 companies were audited. In 2009, they will expand to other Chinese cities, to Seattle, Washington in the United States and New Delhi, India.
