St. Lawrence Cement

St. Lawrence Cement has been commended by Marcus Peacock, deputy administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, for having achieved significant greenhouse gas reductions under the EPA's Climate Leaders program.


St. Lawrence Cement reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by more than 16 percent from 2000 to 2006, according to a prepared release. In doing so, the company surpassed its original target of 15 percent four years ahead of its target date of 2010.

The company met its reduction requirement through energy-efficiency projects and through the growing use of supplementary cementitious products and alternative fuels, the release says.
