Cemex said it is the first company in the industry to provide environmental impact information, including CO2 emissions, for its core products in all of its main markets globally. The disclosure is customized by location and is critical for the development of more sustainable construction.
Depending on the market’s customary practices, this is addressed either through Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), or Cemex’s proprietary environmental measurement tool called CERO2. Both processes have a third-party validation.
“We are committed to being the leading partner in sustainable construction for our customers,” said Fernando A. González, CEO of Cemex. “With this disclosure, our customers have environmental impact information on which they can rely for sustainable construction. We continue to expand our portfolio of sustainable products, allowing our clients to effectively design and manage the carbon footprint of their construction projects.”
In addition, products under Cemex’s Vertua brand provide a sustainable fact label, the first in the industry, which details the product’s performance across a range of sustainable attributes. Vertua has a specialized portfolio of more sustainable, high-quality construction products that aim to contribute to sustainable construction.
Cemex has set an ambitious goal for its Vertua lower-carbon cement and concrete products to reach more than half of all cement and concrete sales by 2025.
