Environmental Excellence Awards Program Has New Format; Entry Forms Available
NRMCA’s Commitment to Environmental Excellence Awards competition offers producers national recognition for outstanding contributions to protecting the environment and maintaining sound management practice in their operations. The program salutes companies that have not only met, but surpassed governmental compliance measures and demonstrated a commitment to environmental excellence through plant and staff investment. Any NRMCA member company producing ready mixed concrete from a fixed plant location in the U.S., its territories or Canada is eligible to enter. Awards will be determined upon individual plant merits; companies may choose to enter plants from each of the five production volume categories.
This year’s program features a more picture-oriented focus with minimal text, versus the focus from years past that centered on lengthy descriptions of a plant’s environmental management systems. Winning entrants will be honored at the Awards Luncheon at NRMCA‘s ConcreteWorks this September in Nashville, TN. Winners will also be featured in a 2016 edition of NRMCA’s Concrete InFocus magazine as well as Concrete Products magazine.
