Sustainability at CEMEX is embedded in our business strategy and in our day-to-day operations. We provide innovative building materials and solutions that satisfy the needs of a resource-constrained society. We strive to minimize our environmental footprint, and in the end, we work to create the greatest value for our stakeholders.
We are constantly improving the sustainability of our products. We are continually working not only to reduce the environmental impact of our production process, but also to enhance the attributes of our building materials to advanced the sustainability of the structures built with them.
We promote and develop sustainable construction through several organizations and associations. For example, we chair the CSI task force on concrete sustainability, which identifies ways to maximize the sustainability attributes and benefits of concrete and related products.
We also participate in initiatives of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). For example, CEMEX is a Core Group member of the WBCSD Energy Efficiency in Buildings Initiative. CEMEX further serves as co-chair of the WBCSD Urban Infrastructure Initiative (UII), which envisions "a world where cities provide a sustainable environment to live, work, and play."
