CEMEX USA has been recognized by the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) for its strong and ongoing commitment to biodiversity, conservation education and environmental partnerships within the communities where it operates.
The WHC awarded eight new Conservation Certifications and seven recertifications for new and existing programs at CEMEX USA operations during the WHC 2019 Conservation Conference in Baltimore late last year.
CEMEX’s Tepeaca and Monterrey programs were also finalists for the 2019 Awareness and Community Engagement Project Award. The company has a long record of excellence and leadership in the award category, winning it previously in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Since the award ceremony, CEMEX USA operations in Demopolis, Ala., achieved recertification for its program designed to conserve wood duck populations. Since 2008, the team at Demopolis has maintained seven nesting boxes near a former quarry pond, providing the birds safe places to nest and raise their young. The WHC is expected to honor Demopolis during its 2020 conference later this year.
