CalPortland believes in giving back to the many communities we serve by donating time, expertise, materials, equipment, and financial support. The partnerships CalPortland has developed with the communities, in which we work, live, and play reflects an important part of who we are.

We recognize that we don’t just work in our communities – we live there too. Many of our employees are actively engaged in community work with the help of the company – projects such as Habitat for Humanity to sponsoring youth programs, donating materials for creating parks and other public spaces, and much more – come be a part of our community.


CalPortland takes great pride in its stewardship of the environment. A leader in technological advances in the production of cement to minimize CO2 emissions, the first fleet of CNG ready-mix trucks in California and 19 consecutive years as a US EPA ENERGY STAR® PARTNER OF THE YEAR award winner are just a number of achievements that distinguish the company as an environmental leader.

As a company that mines materials from the ground, we recognize our responsibility to return land to a condition that can be used appropriately. For example, a former sand and gravel mining operations in University Place (Tacoma), Washington along the Puget Sound was reclaimed by the company and with further development by the City of University Place, was turned in to the Chambers Bay Golf Course, home of the 2015 US Open Golf Championship.


CalPortland’s safety achievements are legendary.
