Concrete Sustainability Council Certification awarded to CEMEX plant

Published by
World Cement,

CEMEX has announced that its Panama Norte concrete plant has earned a Responsible Sourcing Certification from the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC). The plant is the first facility in the ready-mixed concrete sector to receive this designation.

The CSC was launched in 2017 by 11 founding members, including the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the Portland Cement Association, and CEMEX. It aims to improve the transparency of the sector and to highlight the essential role of concrete in creating a sustainable construction sector. This will be done through achieving recognition in green procurement government policies and building rating systems. The CSC acts as a responsible sourcing certification system, grading materials facilities on responsible environmental, social, and governance practices throughout supply chains.

The plant in Panama met the CSC requirements, as confirmed via an audit by SGS, an independent third-party certification body.

“We are proud of our Panama Norte plant for becoming the first concrete facility in Latin America to attain CSC certification, and we are committed to fostering our leadership in the industry by delivering a superior customer experience and integrating sustainability into all aspects of our business,” said Andres Jimenez, President of CEMEX Panama.
