At Boxley, we strive every day to be responsible stewards of the environment and develop managers into sustainability-minded leaders through service on our Green Team. Each year, we produce a Sustainability Report to share with our customers, partners and communities to report on our efforts. Here are a few highlights from our 2014 Sustainability Report:
One of the biggest considerations in our decision-making processes here at Boxley is how our actions, products and processes affect the environment around us. Our vernal pools project at Piney River Quarry is a perfect example of how we work to preserve wildlife habit as part of our operational planning.
To preserve a vernal pool that was within our mining operation, we worked with two nationally recognized wetlands experts, Boxley employees, and other volunteers to conduct the first known transplant of a vernal pool in Virginia—home to several rare species, including the fairy shrimp and the big-headed mole salamander.
