"Sustainability is More Than Just Another Buzzword "

Wendy Schlett

The members of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association identify sustainability as a business approach that integrates environmental stewardship, social responsibility and economic prosperity to ensure the long-term supply of aggregate materials to society. NSSGA recognizes that sustainable practices are necessary today to preserve the potential for a quality life for future generations. During recent years, the NSSGA Sustainability Task Force has developed guidance and tools to assist member companies in adapting to the changing business climate that now incorporates sustainability and sustainable business practices into routine business practice. In this and future editions of Stone, Sand & Gravel Review, we will explore concepts and practices to highlight the benefits of adapting to this new way of doing business.
