CEMEX has set targets for its volunteering commitments for 2020, aligned with the company’s vision of building a better future while contributing to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Currently, 22% of CEMEX employees globally engage in volunteering, and the company’s goal is to reach 30% by 2020.
“At CEMEX, we are committed to improving the quality of life and wellbeing of society, particularly in the communities where we live and work. Our volunteering strategy seeks to identify our employees’ interests and skills, together with ways they can give back what they have experienced in their professional career through volunteering,” said Martha Herrera, CEMEX Director of Corporate Social Responsibility. “Our employees, as global citizens, are committed to the development of their community and their planet, and they are actively driven by our vision of building a better future for everyone locally and globally. Through volunteerism, we can continue to achieve a true transformation of our ecosystem. While we know that there is still much to do, it is inspiring to see how our employees are committed to contributing and collaborating to build the sustainable world that we want and deserve today and for generations to come.”
