36 • November 2017 FEATURE READY MIXED The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association Commitment to Environmental Excellence Awards program recognizes sound operating practices and outstanding contributions to protecting the environment. Now in its 22 nd year, it salutes producer members that have surpassed governmental com- pliance requirements and demonstrated environmental commitment through plant and staff investment. Entries for this year's competition were reviewed by a panel of judges based on image galleries and a written narrative covering site aesthetics, environmental documen- tation, training, air quality and water management, returned concrete plan, community relations, ready mixed delivery, and plant sustainability practices. The NRMCA Operations, Environmental and Safety Committee-administered program awards members in Eastern, Central and Western U.S. regions. "The Environmental Excellence Awards program has been completely revised. Rule changes make it easier for plants to enter, making the competition even tougher," says NRMCA Executive Vice President of Operations and Compliance Gary Mullings. "These plants demonstrate that they are the 'best of the best' when it comes to being good stewards of the environment." "This is another example of the ready mixed concrete industry's move to environmental excellence," adds NRMCA President Robert Garbini. "These entries clearly demonstrate the incorporation of environmental management systems into plant operations." NRMCA honored 2017 Commitment to Environmental Excel- lence Award recipients last month during the ConcreteWorks Conference in Texas. As a program co-sponsor, Concrete Prod- ucts joins in a salute to the eight plants and their owners.
