Outstanding Environmental Operations

Boxley has prioritized pursuing environmental certification programs that demonstrate high standards of operational excellence.

DIAMOND ACHIEVEMENT

Boxley’s asphalt plants have earned the Diamond Achievement Commendation from the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA).

To reach this status, a plant must show that it emphasizes continued improvement in six areas: appearance, operations, environmental practices, safety, permitting and regulatory compliance, and community relations.

GREEN STAR

Green Star Certification

Since 2011, Boxley concrete plants have continuously maintained Green Star Certification by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA). The Green-Star program recognizes concrete companies that maintain Environmental Management Systems that aid in reducing, if not eliminating, negative environmental impacts resulting from operations.

WILDLIFE HABITAT

Boxley aggregates typically uses less than 50% of the acreage permitted for our operations to create a significant buffer between our operations and our neighbors. This buffer is usually used for wildlife habitat. We conduct baseline habitat inventories which are used for habitat enhancement activities and environmental education.

REFORESTATION AND TIMBER MANAGEMENT

Since 2006, Boxley has planted over 94,000 trees on our properties. Our reforestation focuses on nurturing healthy forests, essential for healthy wildlife habitat, soil conservation, and fire prevention. We enlist the assistance of professional foresters to conduct the occasional thinning required to promote growth and reduce insect infestation.
