Cemex representatives were presented with the aeard during the 7th Annual Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration, just south of Los Angeles, in front of more than 350 Southern California business owners, community leaders, and elected officials.

“CEMEX considers energy usage and the environment at all of our operations,” said Eric Wittmann, CEMEX USA Regional President – West Region. “It’s an honor to be recognized for the hard work we do each day. Conserving energy is not only the right thing to do, but it is our responsibility to do it.”

“At CEMEX, we are always looking for ways to improve our energy usage at our cement plants,” said Dr. Hugo Bolio, CEMEX USA’s Executive Vice President – Cement Operations and Technology. “We care about the communities in which we live and operate, and by using less energy we have a positive impact on them and the environment.”
