Commitment To Environmental Excellence
for the 2015 Environmental Excellence Entry Form
The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association’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. Now in its 15th year, 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 5 production volume
In an effort to go “paperless”, all entries must be submitted via email 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 Lunch at NRMCA‘s ConcreteWorks.
First Place and, where appropriate, Honorable Mention awards will be
presented to operators who have best demonstrated environmental excellence
and innovative management. Awards will be made in three categories based on
the plant’s previous year’s annual production volume. Winning entrants will
be honored at an awards presentation ceremony at NRMCA's ConcreteWorks. Winning and Honorable Mention facilities will also be featured
in an edition of Concrete Products magazine.
Entries will be reviewed by a panel consisting of regulatory
officials and industry and environmental consultants. Entries will be 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
image that offers a broad view of the plant site.
