CEMEX is a finalist of the EU Natura 2000 Award on Biodiversity
CEMEX has been selected as finalists for the Natura 2000 award organized by the European Commission for the biodiversity project developed with BirdLife International in the Sotopajares quarry.
The Soto Pajares quarry located north-east of Madrid is operated by CEMEX Spain and overlaps with an area of high biodiversity value designated as Natura 2000 site.
Natura 2000 works to ensure the long-term survival of Europe's most valuable and threatened species and habitats, and is the centerpiece of the EU's nature and biodiversity policy. The Award aims to bring the success of the Natura 2000 network to the public’s attention and to demonstrate its importance for protecting biodiversity across Europe.
This marks a great milestone for CEMEX, not only as recognition for our great work in biodiversity matters, but as proof of the compatibility of our activities and the nature conservation efforts included in the Natura 2000 network.
The winner will be announced on May 23rd during a ceremony that will include high-level Commission officials, NGOs and the media.
