Community Centers

To develop sustainable communities, members must have access to the information and resources they need to be successful. That’s why we’ve created the Community Centers that serve as central locations for our workshops and courses focused on developing skills that will help the participants secure employment or start a small business, improving their household income.

Proyectos bajo Certificacion Sostenible

In Mexico, the first Community Center was inaugurated 10 years ago.

To increase awareness and promote environmental consciousness, we’ve also begun building Environmental Education Centers that will foster discussion and solutions that both protect the environment and improve community members’ quality of life.

The CEMEX-Tecnológico de Monterrey Center for Sustainable Development

The CEMEX-Tecnológico de Monterrey Center for Sustainable Development joins members of the public and private sector with universities to discuss initiatives, share knowledge, create tools and promote the development of skills and capabilities that lead to more sustainable communities. The center is currently focused on building these efforts in Mexico, however it will soon expand its scope to other parts of Latin America.

For more information about the Center please access www.cdcs.com.mx


Greenhouses and Home Gardens

CEMEX greenhouses provide spaces dedicated to producing plants and trees that contribute to quarry rehabilitation and the reforestation of public places in the communities where we operate. In addition, our home gardens initiative provides community members with an opportunity to develop vegetable cultivation skills and produce food that enhances their family’s nutrition.

Athletic Academies

Exercise is a crucial element of a healthy lifestyle. In the communities surrounding several of our operations across the globe, we’ve developed CEMEX football and baseball academies that provide athletic facilities across neighborhoods. These academies promote healthy habits and the integration of diverse communities. More than 10,000 children annually participate in our academies to promote a healthy lifestyle.
