JBP first in Utah to get NRMCA’s Green-Start Certification
Jack B. Parson Companies’ (JBP) ready mixed concrete plant located in West Haven was recognized as the first plant in Utah and the mountain states region to receive the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association’s (NRMCA) prestigious Green-Star Certification at an awards ceremony held Oct. 22 at the company’s corporate office in West Haven.
The Green-Star Program was developed by the NRMCA in collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to recognize the utilization of an Environmental Management System as a tool for benchmarking and continuous improvement.
The certification is also a way to recognize those companies that adhere to the essential principles of the environmental and sustainability movements. The program evaluates a company’s environmental stewardship by examining 10 guiding principles which range from measurement and continual improvement to top management commitment and industry leadership.
“We are honored to receive the Green-Star Certification,” says Scott Parson, president of JBP, in a written statement. “The integration of a strong environmental management system is fundamental to the success of our business. We are committed to continue to develop practices that make our business sustainable and environmentally responsible.”
Parson also reported that several other JBP plants will receive the Green-Star Certification in the coming months.
NRMCA President Robert Garbini presented JBP with a plaque and banner to distinguish their Green-Star status. He congratulated the company for “setting the bar for the rest of the state in terms of environmental sustainability.”
Congressman Rob Bishop and West Haven City Mayor Brian Melaney also participated the awards ceremony and congratulated JBP on their great accomplishment.
