NRMCA is accepting through July 31 entries in the Commitment To Environmental Excellence Awards competition, recognizing member producers’ contributions to protecting the environment and maintaining sound management practice in their operations.

Now in its 15th year, the program salutes companies that have surpassed governmental compliance measures and demonstrated environmental commitment through plant and staff investment. It is open to any NRMCA member producing ready mixed concrete from a fixed plant location in the U.S., its territories or Canada. Awards will be determined upon individual plant merits; companies may choose to enter plants from any or all of five production volume categories.

All entries must be submitted via email or mailed on a CD; forms can be obtained here.

Awards will be presented to plants that have best demonstrated environmental excellence and innovative management. Winning plants and their operators will be honored during NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks Conference & Expo, September 21-23, in Indianapolis.
