Cemex has released the second edition of its Cemex Nature Series, entitled The IUCN Red List: 50 Years of Conservation.
Cemex has partnered with conservation and wildlife organisations to create environmental photography books since 1993, including the 20-volume Cemex Conservation Series. The books are one of the ways in which Cemex promotes sustainability and the environment, and works to develop a culture of appreciation and respect for nature among its stakeholders.
This year’s collaboration builds on Cemex’s relationship with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), which dates back to 2001. The book draws attention to the contribution that the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species has had in guiding conservation action and policy over the last 50 years. The book brings together commentary and images from award-winning photojournalists. Among the book’s highlights are 30 profiles of flagship species of plants and animals that have benefited from their inclusion on the Red List.
