Deadline Nears for Environmental Excellence Award Entries

NRMCA's 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 any or all of the five production volume categories. In an effort to go "paperless," entries must be submitted via e-mail or mailed on a CD. Awards will be presented to plants that have best demonstrated environmental excellence and innovative management. Winning entrants will be honored at the Awards luncheon at NRMCA‘s ConcreteWorks in National Harbor, MD, in September.
Entries will be reviewed by a panel consisting of regulatory officials and industry and environmental consultants and judged based on an electronic narrative covering 11 criteria. Judges depend heavily on electronic images of submitted plants to complete their evaluations. Participants are required to submit electronic images that clearly demonstrate environmental systems and processes and at least one image that offers a broad view of the plant site. Entries must be received no later than Tuesday, July 31.
