The Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) has recertified Titan America’s cement plants at Roanoke in Troutville, VA and Pennsuco in Medley, FL. Both plants received "Wildlife at Work" recertification, which is valid for three years, during the WHC's Annual Symposium held recently in Baltimore.

Roanoke Cement and Pennsuco earned certifications in both "Wildlife at Work" and "Corporate Lands for Learning” categories.

"The Wildlife Habitat Council connects corporations, conservation and community to create habitat and increase biodiversity," said Margaret O'Gorman, Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) president. "Congratulations to Titan America for its successful efforts toward habitat enhancement and biodiversity." Through its certification programs of private lands owned by the corporate sector, the WHC has set the standard for conservation programs on privately held land for more than 25 years.

"This recertification is tangible evidence that we continue to make progress on one of Titan America's goals of achieving a more sustainable future," stated Lance Clark, Environmental Manager for Roanoke Cement. "I am proud of the entire Roanoke Cement team (plant and terminals) for the hard work that has allowed RCC to achieve this outstanding recognition."

The WHC's Corporate Wildlife Habitat Certification/International Accreditation Program recognizes commendable wildlife habitat management and environmental education programs at individual sites. Certification criteria are stringent.
