Cemex Recognized for Conservation Efforts

The Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) awarded four Cemex projects across the United States and Mexico for excellence in corporate conservation in the categories of Awareness and Community Engagement, Desert, Formal Learning and Training. The recognitions were unveiled during the WHC Conservation Conference in New Orleans.

The projects recognized were:

  • Student environmental education at the “Caliza y Arcilla” site in Tamuín, Mexico.
  • Desert habitat restoration at Cerro Jardín, Xoyatla, and Coayuca in Atotonilco, Mexico.
  • Environmental Training at Cemex’s regional office in Alabama.
  • Formal environmental education program at Cemex’s quarrying operations in Center Hill, Fla.

These projects demonstrate Cemex’s efforts to positively impact nature through conservation, restoration, and enhancement as well as its commitment to making a positive and lasting impact in communities worldwide. 

Cemex has expanded its strategy to seek external certifications for sites that are not in high-value biodiversity areas. As of now, 35 of its programs have received Conservation Certification by the WHC.
