Environmental Awards

Environmental Awards include the Environmental Excellence Award (EEA) and the Environmental Improvement Award (EIA). The Environmental Excellence Award is presented annually, by category, to the CRMCA producer member plants that have best demonstrated environmental excellence and innovative management. Recognizing that established facilities may make considerable environmental improvements and not achieve environmental excellence, the Environmental Committee established the Environmental Improvement Award. This Award recognizes significant environmental improvements at a plant.  

The purpose of these Environmental Awards is to recognize CRMCA Producer Members who:

  • Make outstanding contributions to preserving and protecting the environment.
  • Provide environmental leadership for the ready mixed concrete industry.
  • Maintain sound environmental management practices in their operations.
  • Install state-of-the-art environmental equipment and/or implement environmentally friendly plant procedures.
  • The Environmental Award winners are honored each year at the annual Summer Convention.
