One of the unique aspects of this company is our view on sustainability and commitment to improve the environment. Geneva Rock was the first in the industry to invest over $8 million in a new Compressed Natural Gas fueling station and a fleet of 25 CNG Ready-Mix Concrete Trucks. This fleet has significantly lowered emissions compared to its diesel counterparts: 50% less fine particulate matter and 90% less carbon monoxide. I was fortunate enough to witness some of these trucks in action on the project I am helping manage in downtown Salt lake.
Geneva Rock also has a zero-waste facility that makes it possible for 1.7 billion gallons of water per year to be re-used. I believe these practices are more important now than ever because of global warming. My hope is for other companies to follow this trend and find new ways to improve our environment.
