Ammann joins The Road Forward

Ammann America Commits to Asphalt Pavement Industry’s Net Zero Initiative

NAPA has welcomed Ammann America as a partner in The Road Forward, an industry-wide vision for sustainable communities and commerce.

A NAPA member since 2016, Ammann America was founded in 2000 as part of the global, family-owned Ammann companies, which include more than a dozen brands. Ammann America’s President – North American Asphalt Plants, John Elliott, is a member of NAPA’s Legislative Committee. Director Carlos Machado is a member of the IMPACT Leadership Group.

With core expertise in roadbuilding and transportation infrastructure, Ammann’s offerings in the American market include asphalt plants, light equipment, software, and services, including a range of cold and warm recycling options.

This partnership between Ammann and NAPA’s The Road Forward helps fund ongoing efforts to engage, educate, and empower the U.S. asphalt community, driving forward the milestone of achieving net zero carbon emission asphalt pavements by 2050.

In addition to The Road Forward partnership, Ammann’s sustainability investments include its own eMission, which aims to incorporate productivity and lower maintenance demands for all new Ammann products. eMission’s drivers are reducing carbon emissions, improving efficiency, and alternative power sources like electrification.

“We are grateful to Ammann America for their support of The Road Forward and their continued innovation in asphalt plant design,” remarked NAPA President & CEO Audrey Copeland, PhD, PE. “Their eMission will support our collective efforts to reach net zero by 2050.”

The Road Forward brings together the entire U.S. asphalt community to conduct research, implementation, and ongoing education. The Road Forward Partners are NAPA members that actively support this work through financial contributions, leadership, and expertise.

New for 2024, NAPA is also offering opportunities for nonprofit organizations, such as likeminded associations, to support the industry-wide effort. Additionally, agencies are invited to join at no cost to bring their voices to this innovation lab. The new tiered program invites all stakeholders to the table to collectively propel the vision toward net zero. The enrollment period, which occurs annually, is open through Aug. 30.
