CEMEX in the UK and RSPB cement their relationship for five more years

Date published: August 9, 2012

CEMEX in the UK and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, cementing their relationship for another five years. The two organizations have been working in close partnership for the last three years and during that time, with the support of the RSPB, CEMEX has created and managed nature habitats equivalent to an area covered by 21 Olympic stadiums. Last year alone, over 100 hectares were restored.

The partnership has developed and began implementation of an ambitious 10-year Biodiversity Strategy Plan which sets challenging biodiversity targets, including CEMEX UK’s goal to create and maintain 1,000 hectares of priority conservation habitat by 2020. The Memorandum of Understanding will ensure the continuation of this outstanding work and will enhance and deepen the relationship going forward.

“We are delighted that we are continuing our partnership with the RSPB. In the last three years we have made significant progress; their expertise in biodiversity has enabled us to find constructive business solutions to enhance the natural environment surrounding some of our operations,” says CEMEX in the UK President, Jesús González. “Looking forward, their support will help us to continue to manage our sites, both during and after their operation life cycle, to the highest environmental standard, while making a real difference to the country’s landscape and helping to build a greater Britain.”

This agreement highlights CEMEX’s efforts to collaborate with local communities to protect the biodiversity near our operations, in support of our global Sustainable Development Strategy.
