During the 30 years that Lowe has been involved in the aggregates industry she has made many contributions to the environmental progress of the industry. She has worked to promote good environmental stewardship and resources management best practices. In 1985 she received the Noranda Land Reclamation Award from the CLRA in recognition of her outstanding record in reclamation. It is the most prestigious rehabilitation award in Canada. To be considered for this award an individual has made an outstanding contribution to advances in land reclamation through professional practice, teaching, research, or regulating authority and has been widely recognized for contributions to the field of land reclamation spanning a significant portion of their career. In addition to more than 100 industry advancement awards, Dufferin Aggregates and Sarah have been recognized with the Conservation Halton Ralph Sherwood Conservation Award in 1998, the Ontario Heritage Foundation Award in 1999, and most recently the 2006 Conservation Halton Stewardship Conservation Award.

Based in Concord, the company operates six quarries, 13 sand and gravel pits and three distribution yards, located within the Greater Toronto area or adjacent municipalities.

Collectively, the organizations raised $7,500, which they presented to Michelle Baldwin, of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, in honour of David Thompson, a Georgetown area farmer and former Peel Junior Farmer member, who was diagnosed with a brain Tumour in December 2005. At the request of Thompson, the monies will be used by the foundation to further brain tumour research.
