CEMEX Plants First to Receive Concrete Sustainability Council’s Certification in the U.S.
March 21, 2018
CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) (NYSE: CX) announced today that five of its concrete plants in California earned Responsible Sourcing Certification from the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC), becoming the first facilities of any company in the United States to receive this designation.
“Sustainability is a guiding principle at every CEMEX facility,” said Ignacio Madridejos, President of CEMEX USA. “We are proud of these plants for becoming the first facilities in the country to attain CSC certification, demonstrating their leadership in environmental responsibility. Their impressive achievement will inspire others within CEMEX and across the industry. We applaud their strong commitment to manufacturing sustainable products through sustainable practices.”
Launched in 2017 by 11 founding members—including the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the Portland Cement Association, and CEMEX—the CSC aims to improve the transparency of the concrete sector and highlight the essential role of concrete in creating a sustainable construction sector by getting recognition in green procurement government policies and building rating systems. The CSC acts as a responsible-sourcing certification system, grading building materials facilities on responsible environmental, social, and governance practices throughout supply chains.
The five plants, located in Oakland, San Carlos, Santa Clara, San Jose, and San Francisco, met the CSC requirements as confirmed via an audit by SGS, an independent, third-party certification body.
