Mark Williams, environmental manager with Luck Companies, received the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association’s (NSSGA) 2019 Environmental Leadership Award.
NSSGA says the award recognises an individual who has made exemplary contributions to the industry’s environmental responsiveness, is involved with association’s environmental programmes and has direct daily involvement with their company’s environmental affairs.
Williams has chaired NSSGA’s water quality task force and is now the environmental committee chair. He worked to present examples of how the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2015 Waters of the US rule would negatively affect the aggregates industry to regulators and legislators, and helped members understand numerous water and endangered species issues.
Charlie Luck, president and CEO of Luck Companies, says: “Mark constantly challenges our associates to explore opportunities that will evolve our environmental work so that we can continue to make a positive impact on our communities and neighbours.”
The Environmental Leadership Award was presented during the 2019 Legislative and Policy Forum in Washington, DC.
