Green Star Certified

The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) recognizes Chaney Enterprises for its outstanding environmental principles and management at its concrete mixing plants, granting the company Green-Star Certification at the Annapolis, Hollywood, Jessup, Lorton, Seat Pleasant, Upper Marlboro, Waldorf, and Waugh Chapel plants. The Green-Star Program was established in collaboration with NRMCA and the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Highways Partnership.  

To achieve national Green-Star certification, the company must demonstrate rigorous and sustainable actions in reducing environmental impacts and improved plant efficiencies resulting from sound environmental practices or the “10 Guiding Principles of Environmental Stewardship” as identified by the NRMCA.  The review process includes aspects of water quality, air quality, hazardous materials and solid materials management; environmental training and education; community issues; and sustainability related to energy conservation, voluntary reduction of carbon footprint, recycling efforts and the use of pervious concrete.
