Cemex has announced that after reaching close to 7 million beneficiaries through its social programs, it has set the goal of benefiting more than 10 million people by the year 2020.

Cemex made the announcement during the United Nations Private Sector Forum 2015 meetings held in New York City, attended by Fernando A. Gonzalez, Chief Executive Officer of Cemex.

Cemex supports infrastructure and housing development in the communities where it operates. Among its efforts, it is establishing community centres for construction training and education and empowering customers at the bottom of the socio-economic pyramid through different self-construction assistance initiatives, such as renowned Patrimonio Hoy and Assisted Self-Construction Integrated Program (PIAC).

Cemex is working alongside organisations such as Habitat for Humanity, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the Clinton Global Initiative to achieve this ambitious goal.
