For 23 years, the National Ready Mix Concrete Association (NRMCA) has recognized bang-up operating practices and tremendous contributions to protecting the environment with their Commitment to Environmental Excellence Awards. The program honors producers that have exceeded governmental environmental commitment through plant and staff investment.
Entries for the competition were reviewed by a panel of judges based on images and written narratives covering site aesthetics, environmental documentation, training, air quality and water management, returned concrete plan, community relations, ready mixed delivery, and plant sustainability practices. The NRMCA Safety, Environmental and Operations Committee-administered program awards members in Eastern, Central, and Western US regions.
