In everything we do we ensure that we remain the customers’ partner of choice. At CEMEX, we work hard to ensure our continuous growth to become more efficient in our operations, more creative in our product offerings, more sustainable in our daily operations, more innovative in conducting our business, and more efficient in our capital allocation.
Business + Financial Strategy
We have a geographically diversified portfolio of assets in well-balanced sustainable and profitable growth markets, focused on our core business of cement, aggregates, and ready-mix concrete. We create value for our shareholders through a forward-looking growth strategy and disciplined fund allocation. Our vertically integrated portfolio of cement, aggregates, and ready-mix concrete—tailored to each market’s needs—provides us with the opportunity to manage our assets as one integrated business rather than as distinct businesses, further improving our operational efficiency and profitability.

Corporate Governance + Ethics
Our commitment to deliver value to our stockholders rests on a clear recognition that, as a public company, we are stewards of other people’s money. They invest with us to achieve superior long-term returns at acceptable risk. We have never—and will never—lose sight of that fact. We are committed to abide by the laws and regulations of every jurisdiction in which we operate. Nonetheless, we recognize that our strict adherence to the law is not enough to run a global organization. Beyond compliance, our commitment—to ourselves, our investors, and to all of our stakeholders—is to manage CEMEX with integrity. Everything we do rests on this foundation.
