|EPA Performance Track Program|
In 2001, Majestic Metals, Inc. was selected by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to be a Charter member of the National Environmental Performance Tack 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 government 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 innovation.
To qualify, applicants must 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.
Performance Track program members are expected to submit an annual performance report and report progress on environmental commitments. Other Performance Track obligations include good faith efforts towards continuous improvement, maintenance of an environmental management system, and dedication to community outreach.
