For the third consecutive year, CEMEX has been recognized in the CDP Latin America Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) as one of the top 8 companies in data disclosure related to environmental and CO2 emissions performance.

CDP, formerly Carbon Disclosure Project, is an international, not-for-profit organization providing the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information. The CDP has as its main objective to promote transparency and improve the rate of action on climate change.

CEMEX is aware of the importance that climate change has on the economy and on global well-being. For this reason CEMEX is fully committed to applying its resources and leading edge technologies to minimize the environmental impact of its operations. Receiving this recognition for a third consecutive year is an indicator of CEMEX’s fully integrated strategy and the maturity of the initiatives undertaken by the company to address climate change.

Among other initiatives, CEMEX has implemented a methodology for measuring the carbon footprint of its main businesses: cement, aggregates and ready-mix concrete, the results of which are communicated to various stakeholders. Each year, CEMEX audits and reports on carbon emissions, in accordance with the Greenhouse Gases Protocol of the WBCSD and World Resources Institute. Sustainability is a key pillar in CEMEX’s business strategy and is incorporated in its day-to-day operations.
