Cemex has been awarded the highest recognition by The Wildlife Habitat Council for the company’s conservation efforts in Mexico and the El Carmen ecological reserve.

El Carmen also received the 2016 Gold Tier Programme of the Year for its biodiversity protection projects. It also received the Species of Concern Project Award, the Mammals Project Award, the Desert Project Award and the Forest Project Award.

The WHC’s Awareness and Community Engagement Project Award was earned by Cemex’s conservation programmes at the Atotonilco Cement Plant in Mexico.

“Thanks to organisations such as the Wildlife Habitat Council, biodiversity conservation is gaining increasing importance, and we are proud to achieve this recognition,” said Fernando A.
