CEMEX awarded prestigious environmental certification in its ready-mix concrete operations in China

Date published: November 18, 2010

CEMEX in China has become the first ready-mix concrete producer in Tianjin City and the Shandong Province to be certified with the China Environmental Label. The label officially certifies that the products carrying it meet all environmental accreditation requirements in their production, delivery, application, and disposal.

The label was awarded by the China Environmental United Certification Center Co., Ltd to CEMEX Regional President for Asia Jaime Ruiz de Haro and CEMEX in China Ready-Mix Director Frank Liu.

"The China Environmental Label is a clear indication that our business commitment goes beyond providing our consumers with high quality products but extends to upholding our active participation in environmental protection and conservation," says Liu.

The hard-earned certification was achieved through various programs for cleaner and greener production and distribution processes. Guided by the company's global sustainability strategy, CEMEX in China has continued its focus on implementing environmental initiatives. Furthermore, the company continues to seek new and better ways to help promote environmental conservation.

"As a global company and citizen, we understand and have embraced our responsibility towards environmental conservation, and we are very pleased to support this progressive government-initiated program. This eco-label is a testament of our commitment to sustainable development and the community and hopefully, we are able to set an example for others to follow and create products that are friendly to the environment," says Ruiz de Haro.

CEMEX works hard in its operations throughout the world to achieve the highest levels of environmental certification. In September 2010, CEMEX's ready-mix concrete division in the United Kingdom was awarded the Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products standard by the Building Research Establishment. In Spain, CEMEX launched its own ECOOPERANDO label awarded to products and suppliers based on their performance in key social responsibility, environmental performance, and commitment-based objectives.
