      Denver -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Deputy Region 8 Administrator, Kerrigan Clough, visited the Ball Metal Beverage Container Operations site in Golden, Colo., today to formally accept the company as a member of the EPA's National Environmental Performance Track program.

      To qualify for membership, Ball Metal Beverage Container Operations managers have demonstrated that they have an environmental management system in place, a history of sustained compliance with regulatory requirements, a commitment to continuous environmental improvement and a community outreach program. Ball's acceptance into the program in May makes them the seventh member in the EPA's Region 8. Region 8 encompasses the states of Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming and 27 Tribal Nations.

      The National Environmental Performance Track program recognizes, rewards and encourages facilities that consistently exceed regulatory requirements, work closely with their communities and excel in protecting the environment and public health. Performance Track is open to facilities of all types, sizes and complexity, public or private, manufacturing or service-oriented.
