Environmental Excellence in the Aggregates Industry

ALEXANDRIA, VA., Aug. 31, 2018 – The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) proudly announced the recipients of the 2018 Environmental Excellence Awards.

“We are glad to recognize operations from around the country that go above and beyond to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable environmental practices,” said Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO. “These operations prove that quarries are true assets to their communities.”

NSSGA’s annual awards program recognizes aggregates operations throughout the United States for their extraordinary commitment to safety, their continuing performance of safe environmental practices and educating others about the industry. These operations will be recognized during NSSGA’s Legislative & Policy Forum, Sept. 25-27, in Washington, D.C.

Environmental Excellence Gold Award Recipients

These awards provide national recognition for NSSGA producer member’s operations actively contributing to the maintenance of the environment in and around their operations as evidenced by a corporate commitment to the exemplary use of environmental controls and systems. This award is based, in part, on the extent to which an operation meets and exceeds technical environmental and regulatory requirements.  It is not based on aesthetic or beautification criteria. Any active NSSGA producer member operation is eligible for the award. This operation must certify it is in compliance with all applicable governmental environmental regulatory requirements and does not have a pattern of violations during the time period of two full years prior to the date of application.

Two Stars of Excellence Award

Lake Wales Sand Mine earned a Two Star of Excellence Award this year. This prestigious distinction recognizes operations that have received Gold Awards in both Environmental and Community Relations Excellence within five years. The CEMEX operation based in Florida previously received a Community Relations Gold Award in 2017.
