NRMCA Announces Winners of 2016 Environmental Excellence Awards
NRMCA has announced the winners of the 2016 NRMCA Environmental Excellence Awards. Now in its 21st year the program offers NRMCA Producer members national recognition for outstanding contributions to protecting the environment and maintaining sound environmental management practices in their operations. The program salutes companies that have not only met, but surpassed governmental compliance requirements and demonstrated a commitment to environmental excellence through plant and staff investment.
Entries were reviewed by a panel of judges based on electronic images with a written narrative covering 10 evaluation criteria including site aesthetics, environmental documentation, training, water management, air quality management, return concrete plan, community relations, concrete delivery and plant sustainability practices. This year’s program provides awards in three categories based on geographical region in which the plant is located (Eastern, Central and Western U.S.). Eligible plants include NRMCA producer members. The Environmental Excellence Awards program is co-sponsored by Concrete Products magazine.
Plants receiving awards will be honored in September at this year’s ConcreteWorks in Nashville, TN, and winning facilities will also be featured in an article in an upcoming edition of Concrete Products magazine and be listed on NRMCA's Web site. Winning plants are as follows:
