Five CEMEX concrete plants in California earned Responsible Sourcing Certification from the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC), becoming the first facilities to achieve this award in the US. The five plants, located in Santa Clara, San Carlos, San Jose, Oakland, and San Francisco, met the CSC requirements as confirmed via an audit by SGS, an independent, third-party certification body.
“Sustainability is a guiding principle at every CEMEX facility,” said Ignacio Madridejos, President of CEMEX USA. “We are proud of these plants for becoming the first facilities in the country to attain CSC certification, demonstrating their leadership in environmental responsibility. Their impressive achievement will inspire others within CEMEX and across the industry. We applaud their strong commitment to manufacturing sustainable products through sustainable practices.”
Launched in 2017 by 11 founding members—including the WBCSD, PCA, and CEMEX, the CSC acts as a responsible-sourcing certification system, grading building materials facilities on responsible environmental, social, and governance practices throughout supply chains aiming to improve the transparency of the concrete sector.
