Environment

At Interstate Concrete & Asphalt, we recognize our role in maintaining a healthy environment. Some of our initiatives include, optimizing our trucking routes, recycling water, using belts/stackers instead of haul trucks, and providing Environmental Product Declarations for our ready-mix products.

  • EPDs are a third-party verified document comprising of the environmental impacts of a  given product. They are crucial tools to promote accountability and collaboration with our customers to help reduce our environmental footprint.

We are also actively working to expand further into Inclusion and Diversity by leveraging new recruiting pipelines within our community, such as LGBTQIA2S+ programs, Second Chance (helping previously incarcerated individuals), Military Job Match, and Agricultural Education programs.
