According to the US Geological Survey, in 2008, the most-recent reporting year, 5,400 companies with more than 10,000 operations produced 2.48 billion metric tons of construction aggregates in the U.S. alone, valued at $21.2 billion. The industry is subject to a variety of local, state, and federal environmental regulations, particularly with regard to water usage and wastewater treatment. Beyond just focusing on regulatory compliance, many forward-thinking companies are seizing the opportunity to become leaders in environmental stewardship – taking a hard look at all their operations to reduce their environmental impact. They recognize that focusing on process improvement for sustainability is good for business, rewarding them not only with a positive public profile but also lower operating costs – critical advantages in a competitive, margin-sensitive market that has been hit hard over the years by slowdowns in construction and infrastructure projects.
