Vulcan Teams with Texan by Nature to Catalyze Conservation
Vulcan Materials Company is the nation’s largest producer of construction aggregates—primarily crushed stone, sand, and gravel—and a major producer of aggregates-based construction materials, including asphalt and ready-mixed concrete. Our coast-to-coast footprint and strategic distribution network align with and serve the nation’s growth centers.
Vulcan believes responsible, sustainable operations benefit our communities and drive positive results for the long term. As an industry leader, Vulcan’s aim has always been to meet—and strive to exceed—all federal, state, and local environmental regulations. They believe it’s the right thing to do for society, for their business, and their stakeholders.
Their commitment to environmental stewardship is built on:
Making long-term commitments to continue reducing environmental impacts.
Running operations effectively to minimize waste, reduce air emissions, and to conserve water.
Improving energy efficiencies and exploring alternative energy sources.
Seeking ways to reduce carbon footprint.
Deploying new technologies that help us further the goal of reducing environmental impacts and protecting the environment.
They believe their culture of environmental responsibility is fundamental to their business.
Texan by Nature is working with Vulcan to expand on existing conservation efforts, thoughtfully exploring how to expand projects, accelerate results, and increase participation not only among Vulcan employees, who are already incredibly engaged, but also Vulcan’s customers and partners, expanding the positive impact of their conservation work.
Current conservation impact for Vulcan includes 40 Wildlife Habitat Council Certified Sites, 6,300 acres in mitigation banks & conservation easements, all culminating in 37 environmental awards and recognitions.
