NRMCA has announced the winners of the 2012 Commitment to Environmental Excellence Awards as reviewed by a panel of judges based on a written narrative covering 11 evaluation criteria and photographs. The program offers producers national recognition for outstanding contributions to protecting the environment and maintaining sound environmental management practices in their operation.

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. The program provides awards in four categories based on the plant’s production volume. Eligible plants include NRMCA producer members located in the U.S., its territories or Canada.

"These plants have demonstrated that they are the 'best of the best' when it comes to being good stewards of the environment," said Gary Mullings, NRMCA senior vice president of operations and compliance.

"This is another example of the ready mixed concrete industry's move toward environmental excellence," added NRMCA President Robert Garbini. "These winning plants clearly demonstrate the incorporation of environmental management systems into the plant's operation."
