Hi-Crush Receives Environmental Stewardship and Green Tier Recognition

Posted By RJ Alpers, Thursday, December 14, 2017

IMA-NA is pleased to announce that one of our members, Hi-Crush Partners LP, has been accepted into the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ Green Tier program! The Green Tier program and status is designed to recognize companies in Wisconsin that are exceeding environmental standards to benefit the community.

Hi-Crush’s business operations were recognized for having been designed to minimize environmental impacts. Furthermore, Hi-Crush’s environmental management system (EMS), which went into effect earlier this year, is expected to optimize operations over time and improve environmental performance.

Hi-Crush’s EMS is based on the ISO 14001 standard at its production facilities to ensure accountability in its compliance with all local, state and federal environmental regulations. Hi-Crush also adheres to a silicosis prevention program (SPP) based on the National Industrial Sand Association’s (NISA) Occupational Health Program for Exposure to Crystalline Silica in the Industrial Sand Industry.

In the article, Mark Skolos, a member of Hi-Crush General Counsel, discussed the importance of the recognition stating, “Environmental stewardship plays a key role in our business and our culture,”. Mr. Skolos added, “We place an emphasis on improving the areas where we live and work, and our inclusion in the Green Tier program is the result of our continued commitment to not just meet, but to exceed, environmental regulatory requirements in the communities where we operate.”
