Environmental Leadership Program
Majestic Metals was selected by the U.S. Environmental Leadership Program (ELP) to be a charter member of the National Environmental Performance Track program. Performance Track is a voluntary public/private partnership that recognizes and rewards private and public U.S. facilities that demonstrate strong environmental performance beyond regulatory requirements. The performance Track program is based on the premise that governments should complement existing programs with new tools and strategies that not only protect people and the environment, but also capture opportunities for reducing cost and spurring technological innovations.
To qualify, applicants were to have implemented an independently-assessed environmental management system, have a record of sustained compliance with environmental laws and regulations, commit to achieving measurable environmental results that go beyond compliance, and provide information to the local community on their environmental activities.
In 2009, The Performance Track Program was replaced with the Colorado Environmental Leadership Program managed by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The Colorado program is our state wide environmental recognition and reward program which offers benefits and incentives to members that voluntarily go beyond compliance with state and federal regulations and are committed to continual environmental improvement. Majestic Metals is recognized as a charter member and remains a Gold Leader of the Environmental Leadership Program.
