Transit Mix Concrete & Materials’ Seven Points Plant in east Texas is the first operation to be certified under the Green-Star Program. Notes Transit Mix Director of Construction and Environment Matthew Hallmark, “Like NRMCA, Transit Mix is committed to the continual improvement of the ready mixed concrete industry. We would be honored to assist in promoting Green-Star and improving our industry’s image with the regulatory authorities and the public.”
The program centers on concrete-specific environmental management systems, enabling producers to implement and monitor stronger pollution control and waste reduction measures. The NRMCA Operations, Environment and Safety Committee’s Environmental Task Group has implemented Green-Star in collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency. The plant-by-plant certification, which is based on evaluations every two years conducted by NRMCA-accredited auditors, is available to association member and non-member producers.
