NAPA's Diamond Achievement for Excellence in Hot-Mix Asphalt Plant/Site Operations
Patterns of growth all over the country have placed many asphalt plants in the midst of communities. This development makes it imperative that asphalt plants demonstrate good corporate citizenship and neighbor-friendly operations.
To assist asphalt companies in reaching these goals, and to provide an avenue for continuous improvement, NAPA launched the Diamond Achievement Commendation for Excellence in Hot-Mix Asphalt Plant/Site Operations in 1999. Nearly 800 plant/sites are current Diamond Achievement recipients. Over the years, most of the companies that have received the commendation have renewed their participation annually.
The Diamond Achievement process emphasizes continuous improvement. The process begins with a self-assessment of six aspects of plant/site operations: appearance, operations, environmental practices, safety, permitting and regulatory compliance, and community relations. It also includes verification by an outside third party who is not associated with the company. Some questions are mandatory and require an appropriate response in order for the application to be eligible.
