CROSSMARK Selected as Finalist for
Environmental Star of Excellence Award
PLANO, TEXAS, September 28, 2015 – The City of Plano Environmental Star of Excellence Awards is an annual event which highlights and celebrates local projects, businesses and persons who promote environmental sustainability programs within their community or business. This year, CROSSMARK’s Recycling and Sustainability Project was selected as a finalist in the category for Environmental Commitment.
CROSSMARK’s steward for organizational sustainability; The Green Council, set an aggressive target of 75% landfill diversion by the end of 2015. This goal is supported by green initiatives and companywide environmentally themed events aimed at educating the staff at the Plano office on sustainability.
The City of Plano selected CROSSMARK as the 4th place winner in this year’s competition. The Green Council continues to strive for excellence and hopes to bring home the award in 2016.
CROSSMARK is on track to achieve its goal of 75% landfill diversion as it currently stands at 60% as at August of 2015. This represents not just a win for CROSSMARK and its employees but also investors in the CROSSMARK brand, CROSSSMARK Clients and supported charities like The Children’s Miracle Network and Enactus.
