National Ready Mixed Concrete Association.
The NRMCA Green-Star Program has been designed by the Environmental Task Group of NRMCA's Operations, Environmental and Safety Committee, in collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, as a means to support the efforts of the ready mixed concrete industry toward environmental excellence, through the recognition of an Environmental Management System as a tool for environmental benchmarking and continual improvement. It also is a means to recognize those concrete producers that adhere to essential principles of the environmental and sustainability movement of our industry.
As a responsible corporate citizen, a company that maintains an NRMCA Green-Star plant is dedicated to compliance beyond legal requirements. Companies must integrate sound environmental practices into their business decisions. An effective NRMCA Green-Star Program is based on the integration of risk-based cost-effective management practices into site activities with the aim of continually improving environmental performance.
