Today, as a global company, CEMEX faces greater challenges than ever before. While our stakeholders demand more than simply good financial results, technology and global awareness have resulted in unprecedented scrutiny of our actions. We are expected to adhere to top-tier standards of corporate behavior everywhere we operate.
CEMEX has developed policies and procedures to investigate complaints in a prompt, professional and fair manner. All investigations are confidential and may be anonymous, at the option of the complainant, as permitted by applicable law. ETHOS Line is our institutional tool for submitting questions or complaints. If an employee believes he/she has been a victim of retaliation for reporting a violation or complaint, he/she should report it immediately through ETHOS Line.
Our operating risks and compliance with our policies are evaluated periodically, mainly by the Process Assessment Department. Compliance with certain policies is also reviewed by our legal, comptrollership, information security and other departments, as needed.
