GCC’s Pueblo, Colo., and Rapid City, S.D., plants earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 2021 Energy Star certification for superior energy performance.
This is the fourth consecutive year the Pueblo plant won the prestigious certification and the second consecutive year the Rapid City plant won. Both operations were the only cement plants in their respective states to qualify; only 11 cement plants in the country qualified.
“Energy Star certification highlights GCC’s status within the top 25% of cement plants in the nation with regard to energy performance,” said. Ron Henley, U.S. division president. “The achievement shows our commitment to environmental stewardship for this generation and generations to come.”
Both GCC plants improved their energy performance by managing energy strategically across the entire organization and by making cost-effective improvements.
