The Diamond Achievement Commendation emphasizes continuous improvement and covers operations in a manufacturing plant and around a plant’s site. Factors include its appearance, operations, environmental practices, safety, permitting and regulatory compliance, and community relations.
The Diamond Achievement Sustainable Commendation is an expanded level of the Diamond Achievement Commendation which evaluates the social, economic, and environmental efforts of an asphalt facility and how it puts sustainability and community engagement principles into action.
