APAO annual meeting
Two companies receive environmental awards
CBM Aggregates and Walker Industries Holdings Limited recently received environmental achievement awards from the Aggregate Producers’ Association of Ontario (APAO).
The awards are designed to recognize APAO members that have developed and successfully implemented industry-leading policies, programs or projects that make positive contributions to the environment and exceed industry standards and regulatory requirements.
CBM Aggregates developed and implemented an ISO 14000 compliant environmental management system that exceeds industry standards and has raised the bar in environmental stewardship for the company and the industry.
Walker Industries Holdings Limited devoted considerable efforts in controlling site emissions of dust, through its EARTH 1st program which is dedicated to protecting the environment for future generations.
“We have been both impressed and delighted by the response we have received from our members to the environmental achievement awards program,” said Carol Hochu, president of the APAO.
“The industry is committed to the environment and our award programs demonstrate evidence of genuine action at the grassroots level.
“The APAO is proud of our members’ commitment to the environment and respect for the communities in which they work,” she added.
The APAO represents 91 producers of sand, gravel, and crushed stone in Ontario, along with 137 suppliers of aggregate industry products and services.
