The Eagles of the Polish Construction Industry competition is organized under the patronage of Poland’s Ministry of Transport Construction and Maritime Economy. The main objective of the competition is to promote construction sector businesses that create modern, safe, and competitive construction.

CEMEX was recognized for the following exemplary projects:

  • The construction of two clinker silos at its Chelm cement plant. The largest environmental investment at the plant in the 21st century, the technologically advanced silos reduce dust emissions from outdoor clinker storage and improve the stability of the cement produced.
  • The construction of a clinker silo at its Rudniki cement plant. The company’s most important environmental investment in Poland, the silo will significantly reduce dust emissions, improving the community’s quality of life.
  • The implementation and registration of its Chelm cement plant in the EU’s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS). This enables CEMEX to join the group of organizations with the highest environmental standards in Poland.

CEMEX’s Chelm cement plant has an alternative fuel substitution rate that surpasses 80% in some years. Forbes magazine and PwC Consulting named CEMEX as one of its winners in the Leaders of Sustainability 2012 awards.
