Aggregate Industries quarries receive NSSGA awards
Aggregate Industries US (AIUS), a Holcim Group Co., announced that a number of its facilities were awarded the Environmental Excellence and Community Relations Awards from the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association.
“We are extremely proud of our facilities for receiving each distinction,” said Filiberto Ruiz, president and CEO of AIUS in a company press release. “I commend the employees for their continued commitment to the community, environmental stewardship, and sustainability. These initiatives are the foundation of Aggregate Industries’ mission and contribute to our company’s success.”
The environmental excellence award recognizes facilities actively executing local sustainability strategies through measurable technical and regulatory benchmarks. Accokeek Sand and Gravel in Fort Washington, Md., received the gold environmental excellence award. St. Croix Sand and Gravel in Chisago, Minn., received the bronze environmental excellence award.
The community relations award recognizes companies that effectively enhance public perception of the aggregates industry by demonstrating they are an asset to their community, good neighbors, and responsible corporate citizens. Sloan Quarry in Las Vegas, Nev., received the silver community relations award. The McHenry Pit and Algonquin Aggregate Pit facilities of Meyer Material Co., a subsidiary of AIUS, received bronze community relations awards.
Each facility participated in Together for Communities, a year-long community service initiative, as part of the company’s commitment to environmental excellence and community relations. In 2012, AIUS employees contributed more than 16,800 hours of service to 129 projects. Together for Communities allowed the company to forge strong relationships with their neighbors, which provided opportunity for continued collaboration and growth.
