Cemex expands reach

World Cement,

Cemex has announced that, by 2020, it expects to improve the quality of life of at least 15 million people through programmes and value models that transform global challenges into opportunities that generate positive social impact. This increases the scope and goals of Cemex’s social programs by approximately 5 million people from the target publicised in September 2015. Aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals announced in September 2015, Cemex has actively participated in the creation of opportunities through social and inclusive businesses, the development of sustainable communities, and the empowerment of women and young people.

Thus far, all of these initiatives have enabled Cemex to benefit more than 9.7 million people. “At Cemex, we know it is crucial to create opportunities in the communities in which we operate. Thus, we expanded our goal to at least 15 million of beneficiaries by 2020,” said Fernando A.

Gonzalez, CEO of Cemex, added: “Thanks to the success of our high-impact social initiatives, we provide our communities with the tools and skills needed to achieve economic security in today’s society and position them for success over the years to come.”
